In an interview with Palestinian TV while donating blood at a Palestinian hospital today, Abbas’s son says “Israel can defend itself with tanks, planes and the Iron Dome, and what about us? Israel is shooting at [civilians’s] homes. That’s a crime. Israel is behaving like the Nazis and the IDF is an Nazi army.”
