Abbas calls for Israeli withdrawal from Gaza

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas demanded an immediate and total withdrawal by Israel from the Gaza Strip, along with a halt to unilateral activities in the West Bank and Jerusalem. These statements were conveyed during a phone conversation with Bulgarian President Rumen Radev, as reported by the Palestinian news agency, WAFA.

In the discussion, which focused on the ongoing Palestinian situation, Abbas highlighted the urgent need for the Palestinian state to undertake its duties in Gaza, akin to its role in the West Bank. He called for the establishment of channels to facilitate the entry of humanitarian and medical assistance into Gaza, underlining the criticality of stopping the forced removal of Palestinians and securing full UN membership for the Palestinian state.

Expressing solidarity, President Radev hoped for a resolution to the Gaza conflict and supported the aspirations of the Palestinian people towards independence and the fulfillment of their national rights.–News Desk
