Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has accused Israel of summarily executing Palestinians. He lashed out at Israel for its continued occupation and arrest campaign in the occupied territories. Abbas added that Palestinians are living in harsh conditions due to what he described as Israel’s intolerable and unacceptable actions. He said the settler crimes and Israeli aggression have prompted Palestinian youths to respond. Abbas added that frustration and despair has in fact driven Palestinian youths to carry out attacks against Israelis. The Palestinian president once again accused Tel Aviv of trying to alter the identity and status quo of Jerusalem al-Quds.
