Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al-Saud, called for sanctions to be imposed on “Israel” and its officials due to ongoing war crimes in the Gaza Strip.

The foreign minister made the remarks during a panel at the European Council on Foreign Relations’ (ECFR) meeting in Madrid, Spain. 

He emphasized that “Israeli” forces are daily violating the "basic principles" of international humanitarian law in Gaza. Bin Farhan urged Western nations to impose measures to prevent further atrocities.

“It would be very easy for Europe, in desire, to focus on humanitarian issues, to, at the very least, hold “Israel” accountable when it comes to whether or not it lives up to its responsibilities to allowing the civilian population of Gaza to have access to humanitarian needs,” bin Farhan stated. 

The foreign minister also underscored the international consensus on a two-state solution as the permanent and just resolution to the Israeli occupation of Palestine. He criticized the global community's inaction in the face of activities undermining this solution.
