GAZA — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas cautioned on Saturday against displacing Gazans and West Bank Palestinians in his Cairo Peace Conference address. He decried ongoing attacks by occupiers and settlers in the West Bank, emphasizing his commitment to international legitimacy and endorsing the two-state solution, ending the occupation, and resolving the refugee issue.

Meanwhile, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi affirmed on the same day that settling the Palestinian issue at Egypt's expense was improbable, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

He pointed out that Egypt never closed the Rafah border crossing, blaming Israeli shelling for its intermittent operation.

Sisi announced an agreement with US President Joe Biden to operate Rafah continuously, with UN, UNRWA, and Palestinian Red Crescent coordination.

He expressed astonishment at the global inaction amidst a Palestinian catastrophe, condemning violence against civilians and rejecting forced displacement as a solution. Egypt aims to build a roadmap for the peace process.
