Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called on Sunday for all parties engaged in fighting between Israel and terrorists in Gaza to cease fire, and honor an Egyptian-proposed truce.

Abbas condemned IDF operations in Gaza's Shejaia district that killed dozens of Palestinians on Sunday as an "ugly crime," charging that the "perpetrators won't escape punishment."
