RAMALLAH, Sunday, August 07, 2022 (WAFA) – The Palestinian Presidency has strongly condemned the dangerous Israeli escalation against our people in the Gaza Strip, which so far resulted in the killing of 32 Palestinians and the injury of nearly 250 others.
It also condemned the Israeli escalation in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem by allowing groups of Jewish extremists to storm the holy site and perform Talmudic rituals there.
Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas, said “the persisting the Israeli aggression, whether in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Gaza Strip, Jenin and other Palestinian cities and villages, crosses all red lines and represents an Israeli attempt to push the situation into more escalation and tension.”
He urged the international community, especially the US administration, to intervene immediately to stop this Israeli aggression “before it is too late”.
Abu Rudeineh said that President Mahmoud Abbas is continuing his efforts with regional and international parties to stop this Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people and their Islamic and Christian sanctities.
“The UN Security Council will hold a special session to discuss the attack on the Gaza Strip, and it must stand up to its responsibilities and stop this aggression.”
