Palestinian President Abbas says ceasefire must include ban on Israeli raids on Al-Aqsa

Israel and Hamas' recent ceasefire must include a ban on provocative Israeli raids on the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told Egyptian and Jordanian officials on Tuesday.

Abbas made the demands during meetings with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi in Ramallah.

"The ceasefire must include an end to [Israeli] attacks and invasions," Abbas' office told The Times of Israel.

The statement echoed the PA president's comments to Safadi on Tuesday, in which he said that the truce must include "stopping attacks and incursions by extremist settlers, backed by the Israeli occupation forces, on Al-Aqsa Mosque and on our people in the West Bank".
