The truce would last five days and, in exchange, Hamas would release an unknown number of hostages. However, last night there was still no official confirmation in this regard.

But no, the faces on the poster located in the center of the West Bank capital correspond to a handful of the nearly 13,000 Palestinians killed in the Israeli bombings on Gaza. “We are not numbers,” reads the banner, written in English and Arabic.

Torrential rain fell yesterday on Ramallah, where the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) has its headquarters, chaired by Mahmoud Abbas, against whom the Israeli Prime Minister, Beniamin Netanyahu, attacked on Sunday, after the Palestinian Government abounded in journalistic information that claims that an Israeli helicopter killed some of the young people who died on October 7 at the electronic party in the desert, next to the border with Gaza. “Abu Mazen – the popular name for Abbas – who in the past denied the existence of the Holocaust, today denies the existence of the Hamas massacre and that is unacceptable,” Netanyahu declared in a statement.
