Ministry of Foreign affairs and expatriates: Ardan's Incitement Against President Abbas Increases Our Insistence on Dropping the Deal of the Century
The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates expresses its concern regarding the Israeli Minister of Internal Security Gilad Ardan's statements , in which he demanded the imposition of the (Israeli sovereignty over the settlements in Judea and Samaria as the beginning of a new direction that assures the Palestinians that time is not in their favor), adding: (The settlements are legal and compatible with International law). "Ardan " attacked President Abbas and accused him of (supporting terrorism and encouraging the boycott of Israel), saying: "It is time for Abu Mazen to come down from the world stage and go to his house." The Ministry considers these statements as an extension of the ongoing campaign of Israeli incitement against his excellency president Abbas, as part of the US-Israeli pressure to pass the so-called "Deal of The Century", and attempts to undermine the steadfastness of our people and their leadership in the face of the projects that aim at liquidating the Palestinian cause.
The Ministry condemns, in the strongest terms, the statements of Ardan and his public and direct incitement against Mahmoud Abbas, and considers them to be anti-peace and an integral part of the deceptive occupation campaigns, in full contravention of international law and the Geneva Conventions. The ministry holds the Israeli government, headed by PM Benjamin Netanyahu and its various arms, full and direct responsibility for the life of President Mahmoud Abbas, and demands that the States and their leaders deal with this official Israeli incitement with utmost seriousness, and work to confront it and stop it immediately.
