Genocide is the correct term to describe Israel’s actions in Gaza this summer, Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat told Channel 2 in a brief interview on Sunday night.

“Ignoring facts does not mean they do not exist,” Erekat said, as he defended Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ use of the word genocide in his speech Friday before the opening session of the United Nation’s General Assembly in New York.

Israelis from the left and the right as well as the United States objected to Abbas’ speech. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu plans to refute it when he addresses the UNGA on Monday.
