The Muslim Council of Elders, chaired by His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, praises the Arab quintet statement issued by the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, and Egypt. 

This statement supports the mediation efforts led by Cairo, Doha, and Washington to achieve a prisoner exchange deal that would lead to a permanent ceasefire, the release of hostages and detainees, and adequate entry of aid into the Gaza Strip.

The Muslim Council of Elders fully endorses these mediation efforts, aimed at stopping the aggression on the Gaza Strip, ending the resulting humanitarian catastrophe, ensuring the complete withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from the strip, and launching a reconstruction process as part of a comprehensive plan to implement the two-state solution in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions, with specific timelines and binding guarantees.

The Council also emphasizes the urgent need to de-escalate tensions across all occupied Palestinian territories, to end the suffering of the Palestinian people that has persisted for over seven decades, and to affirm the Palestinian people's right to self-determination and the establishment of their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.
