‘Israel seeks Judaization of al-Quds’       

The Islamic Jihad of Palestine says dissolving the two Palestinian governments would only help Israeli plans to Judaize al-Qods.

Speaking at the international Tehran conference in support of Palestinians Wednesday, PIJ Secretary-General Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah said forming a unity government in place of the two existing ones –Hamas and Palestinian Authority– was a dangerous idea.

“This would mean that once the unity government is formed, Palestinians would have to look for another place to live. This is something we are strongly opposed to,” Shallah told the participants of the conference titled ‘Palestine: Manifestation of Resistance, Gaza: Victim of Crimes’.

The PIJ chief went on to criticize the Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas for holding talks with Tel Aviv despite lacking the authority to decide for the Palestinian nation.

Legal experts, politicians and religious figures have come together for the conference to discuss ways to bring Israel's top political and military leaders to trial over the crimes they committed during the war on Gaza.

Israel launched a three-week war against the Gazan population on December 27, leaving nearly 1,350 Palestinians dead and 5,450 others wounded — a large number of the Gazan casualties were women and children.

Tel Aviv had carried out its military operations using white phosphorous bombs, classified as a 'chemical weapon' by the US intelligence.

The Israeli war destroyed or damaged thousands of buildings across the besieged strip, leaving over 70,000 Palestinians homeless.

Although Israel has ended its major operations in Gaza, it continues to stage air strikes on the strip and to enforce a 20-month blockade on the sliver of land.
