Palestine Report/Hyderabad, Oct 17 (Hydnow): Palestinian Authority President Mahmood Abbas, in his first clear and stark denouncement of Hamas‘ attacks on Israel, said that the militant group’s actions “do not represent the Palestinian people.”

“The policies and actions of Hamas do not represent the Palestinian people, and it is the policies, programs, and decisions of the Palestine Liberation Organization that represent the Palestinian people as their legitimate and sole representatives, “Abbas said during a phone call with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday, the media reported.

Abbas called for an end to civilian casualties, the release of prisoners, and a rejection of violence, according to the media. During the call, Abbas also emphasized the urgent need for Israel to stop its aggression in Gaza and to immediately protect Gazan civilians by opening a humanitarian corridor for provisions of medical supplies, water, electricity, and fuel, the media reported.

Abbas said displacing Palestinians from Gaza would represent “a second catastrophe for the Palestinian people, the media added.

Key context: Israel is at war with Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that controls Gaza and carried out devastating terror attacks in Israel earlier this month.

Abbas is the leader of the Palestinian Authority, a government body with limited self-rule in the West Bank. It was established in the 1993 Oslo Accords, a peace pact between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization that saw the PLO give up armed resistance against Israel in return for promises of an independent Palestinian state.
