P.A To Head To Security Council To Counter Israel’s’ New Settlement Plan
The Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, headed by president, Mahmoud Abbas, decided to head to the United Nations Security Council to ask it for a resolution ordering Israel to stop all of its settlement activities in the occupied West Bank, and in occupied East Jerusalem, especially the recently approved plan to build more than 3000 units for Jewish settlers.
On Tuesday at night, the P.A. held a meeting headed by Abbas and decided that it will stand firm in opposing Israel’s new settlement construction plan, adding that the future of the two-state solution, and the entire peace process, is threatened by Israel’s illegal settlement activities and its ongoing violations.
