11:24 am – Abbas lays down conditions for taking over
The Palestinian Authority is willing to assume government responsibility in the Gaza Strip after the end of the war, subject to certain conditions. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas explains that a comprehensive political settlement that includes the West Bank and East Jerusalem is a prerequisite.
The Autonomous Authority was expelled from the Gaza Strip by Hamas in 2007. Since then, it has governed to a limited extent in the West Bank, which is partially occupied by Israel, and Israel has expanded its settlements despite international criticism.
11:05 am – Protest for Palestinians in Tehran

10:36 am – Another charge after making a statement at a banned pro-Palestinian demonstration
The public prosecutor’s office failed in its request to speed up the trial due to statements made at a banned solidarity rally for Palestinians in Munich. The accused reportedly told the cameras that he had approved the attack on Israel by the terrorist organization Hamas in early October. The 27-year-old was charged with condoning the crimes, the state prosecutor’s office said.
After the man’s statement was broadcast on Bayerischer Rundfunk’s program “Kontrovers,” the Federal Anti-Semitism Commissioner of the Bavarian Ministry of Justice opened an investigation.
According to investigators, the application for expedited procedure was the first in Bavaria for crimes following a Hamas attack on Israel. However, such actions are possible only if it is a simple case with clear evidence. A judge at the Munich District Court did not meet this requirement and therefore rejected the application.
So the state attorney’s office filed charges against the 27-year-old again on Thursday — this time through normal channels, without the expedited procedure. The Munich district court will now decide again whether to accept the charges, a spokesman for the public prosecutor’s office said.
