GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian Prime Minister in Gaza Ismail Haneyya has confirmed that Arab and international parties have vowed to intervene to curb Israel’s recent aggression on the Gaza Strip.

”The Palestinian government in Gaza has made extensive contacts with Arab, regional and international parties in order to stop the Zionist aggression on the Strip and curb the [Israeli occupier’s] crimes on the Palestinians,” he said.

”We’ve seen positive progress we hope will be a clear stance to stop the innocent Palestinian bloodshed,” he said, calling for further mobilization from the Arabs and Muslims to pressure Israeli leaders.

”This is renewed evidence of the war crimes committed by the [Israeli occupier], which requires a speedy trial according to applicable regulations in international law,” Haneyya said.

”The blood of children, women and the elderly, and the attacks on medical teams and people’s homes will only increase our people’s firmness and adherence to their rights, land, holy sites and leaders.”

Palestinian factions have agreed to maintain a truce as long as Israel ceases fire and stops its military attacks on the Palestinians, while reserving the right to respond to any attacks Israel may launch against either civilians or resistance fighters.

The factions said the position is based on its commitment to the interests of the Palestinians and to ensure that Israel loses the opportunity to launch a major military operation on the Strip. But the resistance forces have emphasized the need to stay on alert, according to a statement by the Al-Quds Brigades,the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad movement in Gaza.

Israeli military minister Ehud Barak said Sunday Israel is willing to stop military operations against the Strip, as long as the truce is maintained.
