The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) Foreign Minister, Riyad al-Maliki, published a statement in which he accused Israel of handing down collective punishment during its military activities over the past few days.

“An entire population is being held hostage to the Israeli occupation,” Al-Maliki wrote. “I call upon the international community and human rights organizations to defend the ‘Palestinian nation’ against the Israeli collective punishment.”
