Palestinian President Abbas Urges Biden To Halt Israeli Aggression In Gaza News18


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas made an appeal on Saturday November 18 to U.S. President Joe Biden to intervene to stop the Israeli operation.U.S. President Joe Biden said on Saturday the Palestinian Authority should ultimately govern the Gaza Strip and the West Bank following the Israel-Hamas war.The Palestinian Authority used to run both the West Bank and Gaza but was ousted from the latter in 2007 after a brief civil war with Hamas.Israel vowed to annihilate Hamas, which controls the coastal enclave after the militant group’s Oct. 7 rampage into Israel in which its fighters killed 1,200 people and took 240 hostages, according to Israeli tallies.Since then, Israel has bombed to rubble much of Gaza City – the enclave’s urban heart – ordering civilians in the north to leave and displacing around two-thirds of Gaza’s population of 2.3 million.Gaza authorities on Saturday raised their death toll since Oct. 7 to 12,300, including 5,000 children. The United Nations deems those figures credible, though they are now updated only infrequently as war devastation has hampered communications.
