According to Le Figaro, after Tel Aviv, Minister Colonna turned to the West Bank and met with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtiyya in Ramallah.

“These are serious actions that undermine the perspective of a political solution and weaken the Palestinian authority, and may even lead to new developments and instability in the West Bank,” Colonna said in a meeting with Palestinian olive growers who were evicted from their lands and their harvests confiscated by the Jewish occupiers in the village of al-Mezra al-Kibliya in the city.

In a social media post on the issue, Colonna also noted that activities related to Jewish occupation units in the West Bank are being accelerated, which is a “clear” violation of international law.

In his post, Colonna emphasized that the occupying Jews violated the rights of the Palestinians by “depriving them of their lands and rights”, and said, “We cannot accept this, it will be dealt with accordingly.”

Colonna had traveled to Tel Aviv before the West Bank and in a press conference with his Israeli counterpart Eli Cohen, reiterated his country’s support for Israel and called for an “immediate and lasting” ceasefire.

French foreign minister killed in Israeli attacks

In a statement released by the French Foreign Ministry yesterday, it was reported that a member of the Foreign Ministry, who was seriously wounded on December 13 when Israel struck a residence in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, had died.

In the statement, France condemned the bombing of the civilian dwelling and asked the Israeli authorities to clarify the circumstances under which the bombing was carried out as soon as possible.

Israel’s invasion of Gaza after October 7

On October 7, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, launched a comprehensive attack on Israel on the grounds of “responding to the continuous violations against Palestinians and holy sites, especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque”.

Israel announced that 1,200 Israelis were killed and 5,132 wounded in the attacks on October 7.

At least 18,800 Palestinians, including 8,000 children and 6,200 women, have been killed in the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip. While thousands of dead are reported to be under the rubble, civilian infrastructure is being destroyed by targeting hospitals and educational institutions where people take shelter.

The Israeli army announced that 454 of its soldiers have been killed since October 7, when its attacks on the Gaza Strip began, 122 of them during the ground invasion.

During the “humanitarian pause” in hostilities, which was suspended for 4 days on November 24 and then extended for another 3 days, 81 Israelis and 240 Palestinian prisoners were mutually released. However, Israel continued to detain and imprison thousands of Palestinians.

In the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, 297 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish occupiers.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah in Lebanon, 24 Lebanese civilians, 108 Hezbollah members, 5 Israeli civilians and 6 Israeli soldiers were killed.

In Gaza, 1.9 million Palestinians, displaced under the blockade at gunpoint, struggle to survive without shelter, food, clean water, medicine and health care.
