In a press statement issued today, the Council said that such a decision is in the interest of the steps taken by U.S President Trump aimed at consolidation of Israel’s illegal occupation and crushing the Palestinians’ dream of self- determination and building their own independent and sovereign State.

The Council warned of the devastating consequences over this decision on the region’s stability, noting that U.S continued support encourages the occupation to continue its savage aggression against regional countries, which could lead to endless crisis.

The Palestinian Council on International Relations urged the U.S congress to listen to all of “the wise voices” calling upon keeping up the pressure on Israel to abide by the international law and stop their continuing violations against the Palestinian people.

The U.S Senate moved on Friday $38 billion to Israel in military assistance for a whole decade. The decision also included a million dollars fund for the State Department’s ant-Semitism observer office, which is double the current amount.
