Palestinian PM considers stopping Israel´s attack as top-priority

Ramallah, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on Tuesday claimed that today´s priority is to stop the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip as well as to guarantee the access of medical supplies and food to inhabitants.

During a meeting with Norway’s envoy for the Middle East peace process, Hilda Haraldstad, Shtayyeh stressed the emergency of restoring electricity and water services to the coastal enclave.

Shtayyeh warned of the pressing need to send fuel to Gaza Strip so as to restart the water treatment operation and desalination plants in order to ease the humanitarian disaster suffered by the population.

Amid this scenario, Shtayyeh reiterated his call to put some pressure on Israel to stop bombardment, where 2.3 million Palestinians live.

It is necessary to create political conditions to resume talks based on international norms in order to end occupation and to establish a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, he stressed.

Shtayyeh rejected Israeli attempts to displace the Palestinian people from the north Gaza to the south, or expel them from the coastal enclave.

Speaking at the weekly Cabinet meeting, Shtayyeh said that 800 children and 500 women were among the casualties in Gaza.
