Saudi Arabia donates $200m to Palestinians

During his speech at the pan-Arab meeting, King Abdullah said it was necessary to reaffirm the eternal rights of Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims and Christians to Jerusalem as a key to peace in the region, urging continued support for the Palestinians to realise their legitimate right to independent statehood.

The king also vowed to donate $150 million to the program of the Islamic Religious Endowments in Jerusalem, and another $50 million to UNRWA for Palestinian refugees relief.

"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is pleased with the brothers meeting in Dhahran Summit in which the efforts and honest intentions of the unity of visions, and dealing with all challenges, are combined with force, will and coordination", King Salman tweeted.

The summit, which was attended by sixteen Arab leaders, comes one day after the US, France and the United Kingdom launched joint airstrikes on Syria in the wake of a suspected chemical attack by the Syrian regime forces.

In December, US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital and set a plan for the move of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city. "East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian territories".

The move has sparked deep anger among the Palestinians - who see East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state - and across the Arab world.

Islamic holy sites in the city - including the revered Al-Aqsa mosque - are administered by a Jordanian-run trust known as the Waqf.

The "Gulf Shield 1" was held over a month in the Eastern region of Saudi Arabia, with the participation of units from the Jordan Armed Forces- Arab Army and military forces from 24 Arab and friendly countries.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir had said on Thursday that Qatar's crisis will not be on the table at the Arab League summit. Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court for five counts of crimes against humanity, three counts of genocide and two counts of war crimes.

Gulf Arab states have made massive donations to Syria but have not officially offered asylum to Syrians.
