Presidency condemns Israeli raids on Gaza, orders cancellation of holiday celebrations

RAMALLAH, Monday, May 10, 2021 (WAFA) – The Palestinian presidency tonight condemned the Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip that left 20 people dead, including nine children, and the injury of dozens others and ordered the cancellation of holiday celebrations.

The presidency held the Israeli government fully responsible for the escalation and crimes committed in the Gaza Strip and Jerusalem.

It called on the international community to act quickly to put a stop to these crimes committed against the Palestinian people, and to force Israel to cease its crimes that aim to turn the holy city into a Jewish city and dispossess families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

President Mahmoud Abbas also ordered tonight the cancellation of all celebrations marking the end of Ramadan Eid Al-Fitr holiday, which coincides either Wednesday or Thursday, as a result of the recent developments in Jerusalem and Gaza and flags to be flown at half-mast in mourning for the dead in the Israeli strikes in Gaza today.
