The Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, welcomed the opinion issued by the International Court of Justice in The Hague on Friday, July 19, 2024, regarding the illegality of the continuing Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories in the West Bank and Gaza for 57 years. The GCC Secretary General said that this legal opinion confirms and reinforces the Palestinian people's attainment of their legitimate and legal rights in accordance with international and United Nations resolutions to regain the Palestinian territories seized by the Israeli occupation forces. He pointed out that the settlement decisions and attempts to change the geography carried out by the Israeli occupation forces are illegitimate measures that do not enjoy any regional or international recognition, and do not change anything on the ground, stressing that the seized Palestinian territories will remain Palestinian and an inherent right of the Palestinian people. Moreover, Albudaiwi rei terated the firm stances of the GCC countries towards the Palestinian issue, and support for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the borders of June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and support for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to obtain their state.

A female student team affiliated with the Department of Industrial Engineering at the College of Engineering at the University of Bisha, Saudi Arabia, won the second place award supported by the German company SIEMENS, in the simulation competition that was held in Augsburg, Germany, within the activities of the Seventh International European Conference on Industrial Engineering and Operations Management, with the participation of 46 countries around the world. The award-winning project has designed a smart system to predict carbon dioxide emissions from traditional wood-fired heating systems in homes during winter. Using SolidWorks and Proteus methodology, the simulation results showed that the system reduces carbon dioxide levels, which improves energy efficiency and maintains a comfortable temperature. The system also provides an effective solution to improve indoor air quality, reduce health risks, and achieve a sustainable environment. Source: Saudi Press Agency
