Adviser to the Palestinian leader Mahmoud al-Khabbash told RIA Novosti that the Arab-Israeli conflicts will not end until the Palestinians gain their own independent state with its capital in Jerusalem.
“Unless the Palestinian people receive their full national rights, including the right to self-determination and the establishment of a state with Jerusalem as its capital, conflicts will continue,” al-Habbash said.
Abbas’ adviser added that the priority of the Palestinian leadership at the moment is to end the aggression against the Gaza Strip.
On October 7, Hamas fired several thousand rockets into Israel and announced the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood. Thousands of militants invaded Israeli territory, seizing dozens of military equipment and over a hundred hostages. Against this background, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu announced that the country was in a state of war.

The response operation of the Israel Defense Forces was called “Iron Swords”; one of its goals was the destruction of Hamas. The Israeli air force carried out strikes on hundreds of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, and Israel’s National Security Council decided to cut off supplies of water, food, goods, electricity and fuel to the strip. On October 13, Israel told the UN that 1.1 million Palestinians were to evacuate to southern Gaza within 24 hours ahead of the ground operation in Gaza.
