The Palestinian government called a special meeting Wednesday to discuss IDF operations taking place in Beit Hanoun, in which ten Palestinian gunmen have been killed and over 60 wounded so far. According to Israel Radio, Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh called a press conference in Gaza and said that the IDF "massacre" was the first product of Israel Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman's entry into the government. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas also condemned the IDF's activities, calling them a "massacre" and an "abominable crime." He called on Israel to immediately halt all hostile activities against the Palestinian people.
