Israel kills Palestinian boy as Abbas slams ”ongoing Israeli provocations”
Israeli occupation forces killed on Friday a Palestinian boy in the West Bank city of Nablus, WAFA said. Uday Tantawi, 13, was shot dead by Israeli soldiers, who stormed Askar refugee camp of the city.
Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas asserted that the "ongoing Israeli provocations" against Palestinians didn't serve the efforts made by the Palestinian Authority to maintain the declared ceasefire and calm.
President Abbas said Friday, in comments to RNA, that the Israeli escalation would have a grave effect on the ceasefire and efforts exerted by the PA to end armed displays.
"Unfortunately these events are repeated, and the Israeli army is hunting [Palestinians] without justification, but we always tell our brothers to restrain themselves, and the Israelis should be aware of that … I don't know what kind of policy the Israeli government is following," Abbas said, commenting on the killing of five Palestinians in the West Bank during Thursday and Friday.
