The foreign ministers of several Gulf nations sent a letter to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemning the statements made by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich and demanded the Americans take responsibility for it.

The letter specifically referred to Smotrich's statements regarding "wiping out" the Palestinian West Bank town of Huwara and claiming that the Palestinian people didn't exist.

The Gulf Cooperation Council asserted that the Palestinian issue remains a priority for Arabs and Muslims and reaffirmed their support for Palestinian sovereignty.

This is a developing story.
