Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said Tuesday he wanted to avoid an escalation of violence with Israel, his most direct comments since unrest has spread in recent days.
"We don't want a military and security escalation with Israel," he said at a meeting of Palestinian officials, according to official news agency Wafa.
"We are telling our security forces, our political movements, that we do not want an escalation, but that we want to protect ourselves."
