Norway, Spain and Ireland to recognise the State of Palestine

Norway, Spain and Ireland say they will formally recognise the State of Palestine on May 28.

Israel strongly opposes the move, arguing that it amounts to "rewarding terrorism" after the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched its unprecedented October 7 attack on Israel.

This sparked the bloodiest-ever Gaza war, with a death toll of more than 35,700 people, as announced by the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza on May 22.
