The Palestinian Authority today accused Israel of making the Gaza cease fire difficult on Monday.
He made no mention of the Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said the situation in Gaza “remains fragile” – with “military operations” and “Israeli bombardments.” He was speaking in Paris where he met with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Israel has made no secret of the fact that it would hit Hamas in Gaza hard if it fired rockets into Israel.
The Israeli foreign minister pledged Monday to keep hitting Hamas as long as it attacks Israel, ruling out negotiations with the militant Islamic rulers of Gaza just eight days before national elections in which she is running for prime minister.
