Conflicts between Palestine and Israel continue to escalate, and between statements by leading global political figures and new cross-attacks, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister elected last year, promised “broader action” against terrorrists and the citizens who support them. After the latest episode of violence that gained worldwide notoriety between Palestinians and Israelis, the prime minister decided to send a clear message. “The Council of Ministers is meeting today to prepare for even broader action against terrorists and their supporters in East Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria, avoiding as far as possible harming those who are not involved,” Netanyahu said.The most recent case of the constant cross-attacks happened last Friday, when a 31-year-old Palestinian man crashed into a bus stop and ran over seven people. of which two died – a 20-year-old and a six-year-old boy. With a situation of violence that grew exponentially since the beginning of 2023, Pope Francis said at the end of January that “the spiral of death that increases day by day only extinguishes the few flashes of trust that exist between the two peoples.” In addition to these attacks, the Gaza Strip is the scene of a constant battle in which thousands of innocents suffer the consequences of a devastating war, and both Palestinian and Israeli citizens are under constant threat. For his part, Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, said from Cairo, where he is currently staying, that Palestinians are victims of a “lethal attack”, and promised to carry out actions against Israel before the United Nations.
