Belgium considering state of Palestine recognition

Caroline Gennez, the Belgian minister of development cooperation and major cities, says her government is considering the recognition of the state of Palestine. Speaking to Al Jazeera, she said this was necessary for achieving peace in the long term. Gennez also called on the Israeli government to the Beit Hanoon border crossing, called Erez by Israel, and the Karem Abu Salem crossing, called Kerem Shalom by Israel, with Gaza to allow in more humanitarian aid. “On a usual day before October 7, there were 500 trucks necessary to supply what [people in Gaza] need,” she said, noting that “only 600 trucks” have come in through the Rafah crossing with Egypt since the start of the war. Gennez also said that the Belgian government is pledging an additional two million euros ($2.1m) to humanitarian aid in Palestine, and five million euros ($5.3m) to the International Criminal Court.
