Abbas will ask Olmert to push re-establishment of truce, stop military activity in Gaza

Ramallah - Ma'an - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will ask Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert during their next meeting on Sunday to exert all efforts to re-establish and extend the truce between Palestinian factions in Gaza and Israel.

Official spokesperson for the office of the Palestinian president Nabil Abu Rdeineh said in a statement released by the official Palestinian Authority (PA) news agency that Abbas hopes to avoid the degradation of the Gaza Strip due to increased violence.

Rdeineh said Abbas will call on all factions to adhere with truce so Israel will not have any justification to expand military operations in the Gaza Strip.

The office of the President condemned the killing of what it called "four civilians" by the Israeli army air strike in the Gaza Strip Sunday morning. The An-Nasser Brigades, who claimed the launch of two sets of projectiles towards Israel on Sunday, have indicated that the four dead were activists.

Abu Rdeineh said the President called for an end to the ongoing Israeli aggressions, and called the latest incidents acts aimed at ending the truce with Gaza, and "aimed at making things worse."
