The war criminals and their allies are at play. The US State Department confirmed on 23 March 2024, that Washington has suspended funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) until March 2025. By ceasing the funding to UNRWA, which provides major services to the Palestinians in Gaza and across the Middle East, means directly affecting the Palestinians' lives, who have been displaced from their homes to makeshift camps and are continuously facing Israeli genocide and war crimes. Banning UNRWA and stopping funding is not routine matter rather and is going to encourage crafting similar future policies and tactics for all international and regional humanitarian, aid and developmental organizations including International Non-governmental Organizations working in various countries.

If we recall in September 2018, on the occasion of Jews' New Year (ending on 11 September), President Donald Trump announced stopping funding to UNRWA and told American Jewish leaders, “I stopped massive amounts of money that we were paying to the Palestinians… ”We’re not paying until you make a deal.” The tactics to blackmail and starve homeless persons to sign a deal otherwise there is no option but to starve to death. This is not going to work as all the Muslim countries have already unanimously agreed in principle and signed a declaration not to recognize Israel unless the right of self-determination is provided to the Palestinians beforehand and Israel recognizes the state of Palestine as an independent and sovereign nation.

It is pertinent to mention here that ever since, Israel acted like “a mad senseless terrorist” and officially celebrated and glorified her war crimes, all nations tried to resolve the issue peacefully but despite diplomatic channels to street protests all around the world, Israel and her allies are not ready to abide by international law or path to peace. Israel state organs have confessed that it carried following acts or war crimes including; 1) Disrupted and displaced the entire population of Gaza and moved them out their homes to Internally displaced people camps, 2) Carried out massacre of entire members of Palestinian political organization ‘Hamas’ and all those who hold sympathy with them, 3) Will eliminate all those who represent Hamas or hold sympathy with Hamas throughout the world, 4) Will keep destroying Gaza till Hamas is eliminated and 5) Will not let Hamas or its allies to politically come to power through democratic or undemocratic means. Now it has become essential that the world nations require to craft new rules for peace and war.

In the latest development, Russia and China Vetoed an American resolution at the UNSC calling for a ceasefire in Gaza because it also included a call to release the hostages, which are neither held by Hamas nor they are in the knowledge. A temporary ceasefire to allow State-terrorists to gain time must not be allowed as less than the complete withdrawal of all foreign elements is an answer to peace in Gaza. The council will meet today to vote on an alternative resolution drafted by elected members of the Security Council. Meanwhile, Pakistan Day was celebrated on 23 March 2024, where the occasion was graced by Saudi Defence Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman Al Saud as guest of honour. Military forces from Azerbaijan and China also join joined Pakistan’s Armed Forces to express unity and future collaborations.

There are attempts to expedite a new land route from Pakistan – Afghanistan – Turkmenistan (Uzbekistan – Kazakistan) - Azerbaijan (Armenia) - Georgia – Turkey to the Middle East. Last week that Pakistan’s military chief visited Saudi Arabia and met with Saudi Defence Minister Prince Khalid Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Chief of General Staff Saudi Armed Forces General Fayyadh Bin Hamed Al Ruwaili and other senior military leadership. In January this year, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Pakistani leadership met at capital twin city of Pakistan at Rawalpindi. This Trilateral Defence Collaboration was held at the Rawalpindi General Headquarters, where each side discussed strategies, potential collaboration in defence equipment technologies, including research and development. The discussion also focused on the tense security situation due to Israel intrusion inside the Palestinian territories including Gaza. It is time that the UNO should be empowered enough to impose peace and implement punishments. The VETO power require a revisit and conditions of VETO must also be passed through setting conditions through a majority votes at the UNSC.
