Palestinian PM Assassination Attempt Caught on Camera

Israel meets with Arab states to address Gaza at historical White House gathering

The officials stressed that the multi-nation humanitarian and reconstruction effort remains in beginning stages.

The White House quietly brought together officials from Israel and Arab states in the same room for the first time Tuesday, a conference aimed at relieving the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

A White House official told reporters that the Trump administration was committed to helping residents of Gaza with or without help from the Palestinian Authority, which boycotted an worldwide summit held at the White House this week geared toward helping the coastal enclave, The Times of Israel reported Wednesday.

Following the decision, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said his country would not accept a future role for the the Middle East peace process.

After the meeting, Mr. Greenblatt hailed it as a successful one in his tweet, "Many thanks to my friends from Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates & Israel at the White House for the Gaza Conference". But the Palestinians have essentially cut off ties to the White House, furious over Trump's move previous year to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

"We regret that the Palestinian Authority is not here with us today", Greenblatt lamented. Jordan and Egypt, the only two Arab countries to have struck peace deals with the Jewish state, also participated.

The Washington meeting on Gaza was an attempt to exploit the humanitarian situation in the besieged coastal strip for political ends, Palestinian's head of delegation to the United States, Husam Zomlot, said on Tuesday.

For his part, Palestinian ambassador to Cairo Diab Allouh denied that Hamas was ever charged with the incident, in a response to allegations made by some media outlets.

Fahmy, who is specialized in global relations and strategies, told Asharq Al-Awsat that "the mission of the Egyptian delegation in the Gaza Strip, as well as the results of the talks with the Hamas delegation in Cairo, was moving towards realizing what Palestinian people have aspired for a long time".
