President Mahmoud Abbas renewed today his call on the international community to provide urgent international protection for the Palestinian people, impose sanctions on Israel and condemn the ongoing terrorist aggression against Jenin and its refugee camp.
President Abbas made these remarks during a leadership meeting he chaired at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah to discuss the ongoing aggression against Jenin and its camp.
During the meeting, President Abbas called on the general secretaries of all Palestinian factions for an emergency meeting to confront these dangers.
“I directed the government and its agencies to provide everything necessary to strengthen the steadfastness of our people in Jenin and the rest of the land of the State of Palestine,” President Abbas said.
The President called on the Palestinian people to stand firm and steadfast in these difficult moments.
He also called on everyone to unite and defend the Palestinian people’s land, sanctities, and legitimate rights to freedom and independence, and to end the occupation of the land of the State of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.
President Abbas saluted the Palestinian people who heroically face the daily aggression of the Israeli occupation army and the terror of settler gangs and defend themselves, their homes, and their property with steadfastness.
Eight Palestinians have so far been killed and 70 were injured, many of them critically, in the ongoing large-scale Israeli air and land assault on Jenin.
Israeli occupation army launched a major assault on Jenin since dawn today, starting with airstrikes before dozens of military vehicles and several hundred soldiers raided the city, concentrating on its refugee camp.
