In a recent summit held in Riyadh, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas characterized the ongoing conflict in Gaza as an unprecedented genocidal war. The gathering, attended by leaders from Arab nations and Iran’s president, aimed to urgently address and halt the hostilities in Gaza.
Abbas called on the United States to influence Israel to halt its offensive, underscoring the crucial need for international protection for Palestinians facing attacks.
An important summit, organized by the Arab League and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), recently addressed heightened tensions in Gaza after Hamas militants’ attacks on October 7, causing casualties and hostages.
Aid groups are expressing concerns about a potential humanitarian crisis in Gaza due to shortages of necessities such as food, water, and medicine. With the international community increasingly calling for a ceasefire, it’s crucial for prompt action to address the crisis and prevent further escalation.
