This comes as Israel continues to cause havoc on Palestine, especially along the Gaza strip with the latest attack being in Rafah with thousands of lives lost.

Palestine citizens have welcomed this move saying that it is a good step in the right direction hoping that other European countries such as UK will also join in and recognize Palestine.

On May 10, 143 out of 193 members of the United Nations’ General Assembly voted in favor of a Palestinian bid for full UN membership, something that is only open to states.
