PA holds Israel responsible for escalation in Gaza

Palestinians in Gaza deal with the aftermath of Israel's deadly strikes

The Palestinian Authority (PA) yesterday placed full responsibility for the escalation in Gaza on the Israeli occupation, Quds Press reported.

"The Israeli occupation government drags our country and the whole region in to more dangers and tensions through its aggressive policies," spokesman Yousef Al-Mahmoud said.

He also warned the Israeli occupation against committing crimes against the Palestinian people and their property, as well as from carrying out "crimes against the steadfast people in Gaza".

The international community must "afford international protection" for the Palestinian people, he added.
