Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas said that Israeli policies would lead to an explosion.

Abbas made the statement during a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday, reported the official Palestinian Wafa news agency.

“The continuation of these Israeli measures will lead to an explosion of the situation,” Abbas said, according to Wafa.

According to the report, Abbas blamed Israeli “unilateral measures such as settlements, confiscation of land, demolishing homes, expelling Palestinians from Jerusalem, abusing prisoners,” and more.

This comes a couple of days after Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz met at his private residence in Rosh Ha’ayin with Abbas, leaving many Israelis in shock.
