Mideast Israel Palestinians

FILE – In this file photo taken Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, Palestinian children wash their faces for the preparation of the Friday prayers as they stand among the ruins and the fallen minaret of the Al-Sousi mosque that was destroyed in an Israeli strike at Shati refugee camp in Gaza City in the northern Gaza Strip. Abbas has accused Hamas of needlessly extending fighting in the Gaza Strip, causing a high death toll. He told Palestine TV in remarks broadcast Friday, Aug. 29, that “it was possible for us to avoid all of that, 2,000 martyrs, 10,000 injured, 50,000 houses (damaged or destroyed).” (AP Photo/Adel Hana, File)
