Arab Parliament Condemns Israeli Attack on UNRWA School

Riyadh: The Arab Parliament has strongly condemned the Israeli occupation’s shelling of a United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) school, serving as a shelter for thousands of displaced civilians in the Nuseirat camp located within the Gaza Strip. The airstrike resulted in the tragic loss of life and injuries, with the majority of victims being children and women.

In a statement released today, the parliament emphasized that the recurring targeting of schools and refugee shelters, along with the perpetration of horrific massacres by the Israeli occupation, constitutes an ongoing genocidal war and ethnic cleansing campaign against the Palestinian people. Such actions flagrantly violate numerous international resolutions and laws, particularly international humanitarian law.

The parliament calls upon the international community, the UN Security Council and influential nations to exert substantial pressure on the Israeli occupation, demanding an immediate cessation of its genocida
l war and brutal massacres against innocent Palestinian civilians.

Furthermore, the parliament urged the swift accountability of those responsible for these heinous massacres and crimes as war criminals. Additionally, urgent measures must be taken to facilitate the entry of humanitarian and medical aid into the Gaza Strip, providing essential relief from the dire conditions and famine gripping the region.

The government appointed by the representatives: All denominations of the Libyan currency are normally tradable.

The government appointed by the House of Representatives said that the refusal of some shops and commercial centers to accept the Libyan currency in denominations of (50) dinars from citizens is criminalized by law, and affects the national economy.

This came in a statement issued yesterday, saying that it was to clarify the matter for everyone regarding the confusion that prevailed among people regarding the circulation of the fifty dinar currency.

This case was attributed to ‘the letter addressed by the Governor of the Central Bank of Libya to the members of the Finance Committee of the House of Representatives, in which he refers to studying the process of withdrawing the fifty-dinar note in its various issues from circulation.’

The government said that ‘the decision to issue denominations of currency and withdraw them from circulation’ is made in accordance with applicable legislation and the Banking Law is within the jurisdiction of the Governor of the Central Bank and his deputy, ‘and
must be issued with their approval’ and its implementation must be preceded by ‘a warning and a time period of no less than six months until the currency is permanently withdrawn from circulation, and this did not happen” .

“The information circulating among citizens currently has no legal or procedural basis in accordance with the legislation in force, and rejecting the legally circulated currency is a crime punishable under the Libyan Penal Code, and affects the national economy and commercial circulation among people, especially since we are on the cusp of the month of Ramadan.”

At the conclusion of its statement, which it published on its Facebook page last night, the government reassured everyone that all denominations of the Libyan currency are normally negotiable, whether between individuals, banking institutions, or public entities.
