Attack on convoy of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas

Israel-Hamas war continues in Gaza, and while the developments in the region are being closely monitored, the assassination attempt organized against Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday has caused panic in the region.


The “Sons of Abu Jandal,” allegedly organized within the Palestinian security establishment in the West Bank, had given Mahmoud Abbas 24 hours to take action against Israel.

With the expiry of the deadline, Abbas' convoy was attacked on Tuesday. While one of Abbas' bodyguards was shot in the clash, the Sons of Abu Jandal organization claimed responsibility for the attack.


Abbas had a surprise meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in the West Bank on Sunday. In his meeting with Blinken, Abbas asked Israel to stop its attacks on Gaza.


Hamas’ military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called “Al-Aqsa Flood” on the morning of Oct. 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 10,022 people, including 4,104 children, 2,641 women, and 397 elderly people. It injured at least 32,000 people in its attacks on Gaza.

It was reported that 1,400 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5,132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.
The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2.5 million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In the occupied West Bank, 106 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers. In Israel’s attacks on Gaza, 48 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since Oct. 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing civilians.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he was breaking off all contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of Israeli attacks on civilians in the Gaza Strip.
