During the call, His Excellency expressed the State of Qatar's firm stance in condemning all forms of targeting civilians.

His Excellency said that killing innocents, especially women and children, as well as practicing collective punishment is unacceptable under any pretext. His Excellency stressed the need to open humanitarian corridors to ensure that relief and aid reach the Palestinian brothers who are under bombardment, especially in light of the deteriorating conditions in the Gaza Strip.

His Excellency also underlined the need to coordinate regional and international efforts to stop the aggression against Gaza and work hard toward achieving a just and comprehensive peace. His Excellency warned of the danger of attempts to force displace Palestinian people from Gaza, stressing the justice of the Palestinian cause, the legitimate rights of the fraternal Palestinian people, and their right to establish their independent state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
