Abbas calls for UN committee on Israeli crimes against Palestinians - more talk while more Palestinians die

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday 

called on UN Chief Ban Ki-Moon to form an international 

committee to investigate Israeli crimes committed against 

Palestinians, media reported.

The official Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa said 

that Abbas gave Robert Serry, the UN special coordinator 

for Mideast peace, a letter to deliver to Ki-Moon on the 


"Mohammad Abu Khdeir was burnt alive. Sixteen 

Palestinians, including children and women were killed 

during the past two weeks, aside from the ongoing 

kidnapping attempts and assaults against children," Abbas 

said, according the Wafa report.

"We all saw through the media the face of Tarek Abu 

Khdeir distorted with injuries by" Israeli police, he added.

"We are preparing for a set of steps to deter the Israeli 

aggression and curb settlers' crimes and the ongoing 

attacks against our people in the besieged Gaza Strip."

The President's remarks come as tensions soar amid riots 

by Palestinians in protest over the killing of 16-year-old 

Muhammad Abu Khdeir on Wednesday.

Abu Khdeir's murder is assumed to have been perpetrated 

by Jewish extremists angry about the recent killing of three 

Israelis in the West Bank.
