Senior PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo expresses support for Hamas in the Gaza Strip, declaring that “we are sure that Gaza won’t break so long as our eminent nation stands by its side.”
Rabbo continues, saying that Hamas’s ceasefire demands are those of the Palestinian people.
“The demands from Gaza for a cessation of attacks and removal of all forms of siege are the demands of the entire Palestinian nation, and they reflect the objective which the Palestinian leadership committed to.”
Meanwhile, reports from the Gaza Strip say Israeli planes are striking the territory. Hamas Health Ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidra reports three killed and over 20 injured in an attack on Khan Yunis, in the south of the Gaza Strip.
