Putin and Abbas agreed on the settlement

Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that the establishment of a sovereign State of Palestine on the 1967 borders is the basic condition for settling the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Putin said, in the message conveyed by the Russian President’s Special Envoy to the Middle East and African Countries, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, on Tuesday, that the bloody conflict has become a cause of immeasurable suffering experienced by the civilian population in Palestine.
I believe that it has become particularly important to reaffirm Russia’s firm position in support of restoring the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to establish a sovereign state, especially within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The Russian President indicated that this particular matter is considered a major condition for achieving a comprehensive, just and long-term Palestinian-Israeli settlement, according to TASS.
It is also noteworthy that Israel had imposed on the Gaza Strip, which was already subject to a siege since Hamas came to power in 2007, an “enforceable siege” since the ninth of October, and cut off water, food, electricity, medicine, and fuel, following the Hamas attack on the seventh of the same month.
While more than half of the housing in the Strip was damaged or destroyed due to violent Israeli raids, according to the United Nations. About 1.7 million Palestinians out of 2.4 million were forced to flee from their homes in the north of the Gaza Strip to its south.
Meanwhile, a temporary ceasefire that extended for 4 days between Israel and the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip led to the release of 68 Israeli prisoners, as well as workers of other nationalities, in exchange for 150 Palestinian women and children who have been languishing for months and years in Israeli prisons.
It also opened the way for more relief trucks to enter the densely populated sector.
