RAMALLAH, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtaye on Monday called on the new Israeli government to end the occupation and recognize the Palestinian people's legitimate rights.
In an official press statement, Ishtaye said that the new Israeli government must recognize the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, adding that "this government will have no future if it doesn't recognize the Palestinians' future."
Meanwhile, Ishtaye warned the "serious consequences that would be resulted from the Israeli occupation's authorities to allow the right-wing extremists to participate in the flag march in Jerusalem on Tuesday."
"Organizing the flag march in East Jerusalem is a provocation to the Palestinian people and aggression on the city and our holy places," he said, adding that "the international community has to intervene to stop it."
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict in East Jerusalem has been mounting since April, which led to more tension between the two sides in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
On May 10, tit-for-tat violent fighting broke out in the besieged coastal enclave between the two sides. It ended on May 21 after Egypt brokered a ceasefire. Official Israeli and Palestinian figures said that during the 11 days of fighting, more than 250 Palestinians and 13 Israelis were killed, and hundreds were injured.
