RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- President Abbas will hold an emergency meeting in Ramallah Tuesday evening to discuss initiatives to end Israel's war on Gaza, sources told Ma'an.

The emergency meeting will take place at 7 p.m. and Abbas will discuss his latest visits to Qatar and Cairo.

It is expected that the president will announce a political initiative to demand that the international community intervene in the ongoing Israeli assault on Gaza, including issuing a timetable for Israel withdrawing from the occupied Palestinian territories.

Efforts are still ongoing to achieve a ceasefire proposal presented by Egypt, which is likely similar to previous initiatives but with minor changes, a Palestinian source said.

On Saturday, Hamas signed a proposal presented by Abbas to apply to join the International Criminal Court.

HAMAS prefers WAR ON ISRAEL, to peace for Gaza, and thus Hamas IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF GAZA'S DEATH & DESTRUCTION.

The only way for any kind of long term peace solution, other than the right-wing Zionists being thrown out of power in Israeli government, IDF and Shin Bet, is for all the illegal settlements in the West Bank to be shut down and settlers removed, and the occupation of the West Bank is stopped. Otherwise, how can anyone be expected to live "peacefully" under an occupation, when they are constantly harassed, attacked and denied their basic human rights?
