Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

South Africa has issued a strong plea for an end to violence and the promotion of peace between Israel and Palestine. The recent escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has raised grave concerns within the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO).

In a statement, DIRCO expressed its deep worry over the current situation, attributing the new wave of violent clashes to Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine, expansion of settlements, desecration of holy sites, and ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people.

To effectively address the crisis, DIRCO stressed the urgent need for a credible peace process that respects previous United Nations resolutions supporting a two-state solution. South Africa, in coordination with the international community, aims to achieve a lasting and viable peace, with a contiguous Palestinian State coexisting peacefully with Israel within the internationally recognized borders of 1967, with East Jerusalem serving as the capital.

The department emphasized the significance of upholding international law and UN resolutions, asserting that the global community has a responsibility to act and eliminate any obstacles to peace and violations of international law.

DIRCO firmly believes that violence, killings, forced displacements, illegal settlements, and the ongoing siege of Gaza hinder the prospects of resolving the conflict. Attention must be directed towards addressing the final status issues, including borders, the status of Jerusalem, the release of political prisoners, and the right of return.

It is evident that a just and comprehensive resolution of the conflict is essential for lasting peace in Israel, Palestine, and the broader region. Escalated tensions, increased violence, instability, and a prolonged conflict bring no benefits to Israelis, Palestinians, or the region as a whole.

The department calls upon all parties involved to choose peace over violence and urges the international community to actively support and establish a credible peace process based on existing resolutions.


South Africa, drawing on its experience in mediation and conflict resolution, stands ready to contribute its expertise, as it has done previously on the African continent and around the world.
