Abbas condemns rocket fire at Israel, calls to 'respect ceasefire deal'

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned Tuesday the rocket fire into Israel's southern communities earlier in the day. Abbas demanded all Palestinian factions respect the ceasefire deal that was signed between Israel and Hamas after Operation Pillar of Defense and was included in the recent unity deal between Fatah and Hamas.


Abbas said in a statement that respecting the ceasefire deal harms the security interest of the Palestinian people and that attacking Israel gives it an excuse to continue its attacks in Gaza. (Roi Kais)
