Media reports stated that Ireland and Norway are expected to announce, today, Wednesday, official recognition of a Palestinian state, while Israel denounced and warned against the move.

The public broadcaster RTE and the Irish Times reported that the prevailing atmosphere indicates that the decision will be announced during a press conference on Wednesday morning.

The expected announcement by Irish Prime Minister Simon Harris, his deputy Michael Martin, and Minister Eamonn Ryan comes after a statement by Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez last week in which he said that he would reveal, on Wednesday, the date for Madrid’s recognition of a Palestinian state.

Sanchez announced in March that Spain, Ireland, Slovenia and Malta had agreed to take their first steps towards recognizing a Palestinian state next to the State of Israel, considering that the two-state solution is necessary for lasting peace.

In this context, Norwegian media quoted informed sources that the Norwegian government will announce, today, Wednesday, recognition of a Palestinian state.

'More terrorism'

On the other hand, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned yesterday, Tuesday, against the European move, saying in a post on the “X” platform that recognition “will lead to more terrorism and instability in the region and endanger the chances of peace,” as it put it.

Sweden, a member of the European Union, previously recognized the Palestinian state in 2014, as six other European countries recognized it earlier: Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Romania.

Since 1988, the Palestinian state has been recognized by 139 countries out of 193 member states of the United Nations.

The step of some European countries comes at a time when Israel has continued, since October 7, 2023, to wage a devastating war on Gaza, leaving more than 115,000 Palestinians martyred and wounded, most of them children and women, and about 10,000 missing, amid massive destruction and famine that claimed lives. Children and the elderly.

Israel continues the war on Gaza despite the issuance of a resolution by the UN Security Council to stop the fighting immediately, and despite the International Court of Justice demanding that it take immediate measures to prevent acts of “genocide” and improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
