Norway, Spain and Ireland recognize Palestine.


Palestine: 22 May 2024: As three Europeans recognize the Palestinian state, Israel is incensed, More than seven months into the catastrophic Gaza conflict, Israel has responded angrily to the announcement by three European nations that they will recognize a Palestinian state, according to media.

The move, according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is akin to a "reward for terror" following Hamas's October 7 strike that ignited the Gaza War.

Speaking on his first visit to the disputed sacred site of the Temple Mount in the Old City of Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem since October 7, far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir claimed that the recognition rewarded "murderers and aggressors."
