The Secretary-General of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) blamed the US government for the Israeli regime's plans to occupy Palestinian territory.

Iran Press/Middle East: The Israeli regime wants to occupy parts of the West Bank and annex it to the occupied territories in July.

Ali al-Qaradaghi called on the Islamic Ummah and the world to oppose the Zionist regime's plans, which are backed by the United States, seeking new occupation of the Palestinian territory and the recognition of al-Quds as the capital of Israel.

"The Zionist regime is abusing the world engagement with the coronavirus, taking advantage of the silence of some Arab countries in their efforts to implement the so-called ‘Deal of the Century’," al-Qaradaghi said in a statement.

The International Union of Muslim Scholars also stressed the union's firm position on the Palestinian issue, which is the first issue for Muslims, and praised the positions of the countries that support the Palestinian cause. 

The Israeli regime wants to occupy parts of the West Bank and annex them to the Palestinian territories it has occupied.

The annexation encompasses over 30 percent of the West Bank. The United States said it was ready to recognize Israel's annexation of much of the occupied West Bank.
