In a letter to heads of state of more than 40 countries, Haniyeh described the plan as a new aggression and a threat to the present and future of Palestine and the entire Arab and Muslim Ummah, al-Ahed News reported.
He said an immediate meeting of Arab and Islamic countries is necessary to support Palestinians’ united stance against all settlement activities, Judaization attempts in Jerusalem al-Quds and West Bank, and attempts to sideline the Palestinian issue.
Haniyeh underlined that a unified and serious stance must be adopted to counter all such conspiracies and to support Islamic and Christian sanctities.
He further decried attempts by some Arab countries to normalize ties with the Zionist regime as an “unforgivable mistake”.
The Zionist regime wants to annex parts of the West Bank on July 1, as agreed between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and rival-turned-partner Benny Gantz of the Blue and White party.
The West Bank, including East Jerusalem al-Quds, is seen as occupied territory under international law, thus making all Zionist settlements there – as well as the planned annexation – illegal.
