On Friday, the Berlin police opened a preliminary investigation against Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas over his comments that Israel had committed “50 Holocausts” against Palestinians this week.

After receiving a formal criminal complaint, the police will investigate Abbas for possible incitement to hatred.

Abbas made the controversial comment during a news conference in Berlin alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

The statement sparked outrage in Germany, Israel, and beyond.

Meanwhile,  Germany’s Foreign Ministry said that Abbas — a Palestinian Authority representative — would enjoy immunity from prosecution because he was officially visiting the country.

According to reports, Germany doesn’t recognize the Palestinian Territories as a sovereign state.
