According to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, Shtayyeh also reiterated the importance of cooperation and coordination with the ICRC to deliver humanitarian aid to Palestinians across the occupied territories, mainly in the Gaza Strip.

The PA prime minister expressed the Palestinian leadership’s rejection of Israeli threats against Palestinian prisoners, including those being made against banks that receive payments made to detainees.

Around 5,700 Palestinians, including numerous women and children, are currently detained in Israeli prisons.
