Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas stressed the need to stop the Israeli aggression against Gaza immediately and allow urgent humanitarian corridors to be opened to the Gaza Strip.
This came during a phone call with the President of the Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, on Sunday, during which they discussed the latest developments in the situation in Palestine, according to what the Palestinian News Agency “Wafa” reported.
According to the agency, Abbas stressed “the necessity of stopping the Israeli aggression against the people immediately, protecting them, and allowing urgent humanitarian corridors to be opened to the Gaza Strip, providing medical supplies, and delivering water, electricity, and fuel to the citizens there.”
Abbas renewed his “complete rejection of the displacement of people from the Gaza Strip, because that would be tantamount to a second Nakba.”
The Palestinian President affirmed his “rejection of the killing of civilians on both sides and the call for the release of civilians, prisoners and detainees on both sides.”
Abbas reiterated “the rejection of violence, commitment to international legitimacy and signed agreements, peaceful popular resistance, and political action as a path to achieving national goals, stressing the necessity of seeking a political solution that ends the occupation,” according to Wafa.
Abbas pointed out that “the policies, programs and decisions of the Palestine Liberation Organization represent the Palestinian people as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people, and not the policies of any other organization,” referring to the Hamas movement that controls the Gaza Strip.
Since October 7, the Israeli army has continued to launch raids on Gaza. Which led to the death of 2,670 Palestinians and the injury of 9,600 others, according to the Ministry of Health.
Meanwhile, the operation launched by Hamas under the name “Operation Al-Aqsa Flood” resulted in the killing of more than 1,300 Israelis, the wounding of 3,715, and the capture of more than a hundred others, according to official Israeli sources.
The population of Gaza, about 2.2 million Palestinians, suffer from extremely deteriorating living conditions as a result of an ongoing Israeli siege since Hamas won the Palestinian legislative elections in 2006.
