Arab Summit hails Moroccan King’s sustained efforts for protection of Al-Quds City
The Arab leaders commended, on Wednesday in Algiers, the continuous efforts made by King Mohammed VI, Chairman of Al-Quds Committee, for the defense of the Holy City of Jerusalem.
In the final resolution adopted on the developments of the Palestinian cause, the Arab Summit, held Nov.1-2 in Algeria, hailed the projects carried out by Bayt Mal Al-Quds Acharif Agency, the executive arm of the Al Quds Committee, to support the struggle of the Maqdessis.
The resolution also welcomed the payment by Morocco of its financial contribution to the Al Aqsa and Al-Quds Funds. The summiteers expressed support for the Al-Quds Committee, and praised the role and actions made by Bayt Mal Al-Quds Agency for the Maqdessis.
In his report submitted to the summit, Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abu El Gheit stressed the importance of the agreements signed on Sept. 11 by the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Acharif Agency to sponsor ten schools in the Holy City, as well as the emergency medical and humanitarian aid provided by the Kingdom to the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The report commended the mediation, conducted by Morocco and the U.S., which led to an agreement on the permanent opening of the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge linking the West Bank to Jordan.
The Bayt Mal Al-Quds Acharif Agency, which is engaged in protecting Arab and Islamic rights in the Holy City, has also supported and funded programs and projects in the social, health, education and housing fields, contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of Palestinians and the preservation of the religious and civilizational heritage of the Holy City.
The last of these projects, worth over one million dollars provided by Morocco, was launched by the Agency last September. The North African Kingdom contributes nearly 86% in the annual budget of the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Acharif Agency.
