Abbas urges West to stop Israeli strikes on Gaza

RAMALLAH, West Bank, April 7 (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged Western powers on Thursday to intervene after Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip killed four Palestinians.

He called on the West “to immediately intervene to stop this aggression,” the official Wafa news agency reported.

Abbas also urged Palestinian militants not to give Israel an excuse to hit Gaza. The flareup of violence followed an attack on an Israeli school bus by an anti-tank missile fired from Gaza which wounded two people.
