Palestinian Authority seeks Security Council support to stop Israeli raids

(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Palestinian Authority has made calls for organising an emergency UN Security Council session aimed at putting a end to continuing Israeli aggression on Palestinian territories and at providing protection for its people. "The Israeli aggression which has intensified over the past few days, killed six Palestinians, violated the privacy of homes, state institutions and universities and has led to the arrest of hundreds - including some who had previously been released - under the pretext of searching for the three missing settlers," said a Palestinian Authority statement. Some three Israeli settlers were abducted in the occupied West Bank on June 12 and Israel has launched a fierce raid on Palestinian territories in search of the three teenagers. It has accused Palestinian movement Hamas for their abduction, and said that has evidence that proves its accusations, much to the movement's denial. "This aggression has not achieved its aims and will only lead to the Palestinian people pushing further for their rights. Israel's arrogance will not stop the Palestinian people from achieving their legitimate nationalistic aims of freedom and independence," added the statement. The Israeli government is causing the situation to a point of "crisis and explosion" and these practices will not break the solid unity of the Palestinian people in facing this violent wave which aims to destroy the nationalistic project," it said.
