Palestinians have terminated all agreements with Israel and the US amid Israel’s intention to extend its sovereignty over “the Palestinian lands”, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas stated on Tuesday.
“The Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian State today has discharged all obligations under all agreements with the governments of the United States and Israel, including those related to security”, Abbas told the Al Jazeera TV channel.
The agreements Abbas hinted at, without directly mentioning them, allegedly include a series of documents signed in the 1990s during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict resolution process among which are the Oslo Accords, the 1997 Hebron Protocol and the 1998 Wye River Memorandum.
The Palestinian leader called on Israel to bear the full responsibility to the international community from now on as an “occupying force in the occupied territory of Palestine.”
He also accused US President Donald Trump of “injustice towards the Palestinian people”.
“We hold the United States fully responsible for the injustice towards the Palestinian people, we consider them the main partner of the occupying Israeli government in all its hostile decisions”, Abbas said.
The Israeli unity government newly formed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz revealed plans to extend sovereignty over parts of West Bank as early as July based on the peace plan proposed by the Trump Administration.
