Abbas: Ground Operation Will Complicate Things


Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday night said Israel’s ground operation in Gaza will cause more bloodshed and complicate efforts to end the conflict.

"Israel must stop its (ground) operation in the Gaza Strip," the Egyptian state news agency MENA quoted Abbas as saying in Cairo.

"This operation would only lead to more bloodshed and complicate the situation and efforts to stop the (Israeli) aggression," he warned.
