RAMALLAH, Tuesday, February 25, 2020 (WAFA) – The ceasefire reached last night between Israel and the Palestinian factions in Gaza has ended two days of hostilities, said the three Palestinian Arabic dailies in their Tuesday issue.
They said several people were injured in Gaza in the Israeli airstrikes.
Al-Quds said Israel imposed a total closure on the Gaza Strip as a punishment for the rocket firing.
In the West Bank, al-Quds said Israeli settlers went on a rampage in the Ramallah area as Israeli army injures two Palestinian youths in Beit Sira village near Ramallah and al-Hayat al-Jadida said Israel detained 37 people in overnight raids.
The main front page story in al-Hayat al-Jadida said President Mahmoud Abbas met with members of the Committee for Interaction with Israel and told them that they are working with a decision from the leadership and that their work is considered nationalistic at all levels.
It said Abbas also met with the Qatari ambassador to Palestine, Mohammad Amadi.
Al-Quds said in a major front page story that the American-Israeli committee, born from the so-called deal of the century, started mapping the area from the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel in the occupied West Bank.
Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted presidential spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, saying that the maps of the American-Israeli committee will not give legitimacy to anyone.
Al-Quds quoted the Israeli B’Tselem organization saying 19 Palestinians, including children, have lost their eyes as a result of Israeli sniper shooting in Gaza.
It said that after Israel has banned it entry into Gaza, a European Parliament committee started its official work in Palestine.
Al-Ayyam said Israel published tenders for the construction of 1077 housing units in Givat Hamatos settlement, built on Beit Safafa land in occupied East Jerusalem, and that on Thursday a decision will be issued for the construction of 1148 new housing units in settlements in the heart of the occupied West Bank.
It said in another story that the United Nations Security Council called for keeping the two-state solution alive.
It said the government has established a unit to follow up on coronavirus.
The paper also said the Doctors’ Union has decided to escalate its protest measures.
