Palestinian Presidency: Daily killings of Palestinians is an all-out war
The spokesperson for the Palestinian Presidency, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said today, Tuesday, that "the daily killings committed by the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian people, the latest of which took place today in the Jenin camp, is an all-out war and amount to a full-scale systematic destruction."
He pointed out that the crime committed by the occupation forces reaffirms the occupation government's endeavor to thwart all regional and international efforts aimed at stopping such actions.
The Palestinian Presidency Spokesperson called on the US administration to take immediate action and put effective pressure on the Israeli occupation government to stop its crimes and continued aggression against Palestinians.
He stressed that resolving the Palestinian issue in accordance with international law and giving the Palestinian people their right to freedom and independence is key to resolving the region's crises.
On its part, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said today that the massacres and attacks of the Israeli occupation in Jenin and Nablus confirm that the IOF have opted for escalation, holding the Israeli occupation responsible for the repercussions of this escalation on the arena of ongoing struggle.
