Osama Qawasmeh, the official spokesperson for PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party, calls for Palestinian unity in the face of what he terms Israeli “massacres and crimes” against Palestinians, “especially in Jerusalem and Hebron.”
Earlier today, Palestinian assailants attacked police in Jerusalem and in Hebron. All told, three alleged attackers were killed, while two Israeli officers were injured, one seriously.
Qawasmeh says Israel is carrying out “organized state terrorism in order to blow up the situation, and… impose a security rather than political solution.”
He calls for an “immediate” Arab and Islamic response at the upcoming UN General Assembly to put pressure on Israel and “protect the Palestinian people.”
Qawasmeh ends by calling “Israeli executions of Palestinians” a product of “literal orders from Tel Aviv.”
