PLO Calls For New Offensive Against Israel at UN and ICC

The Palestinian Authority (PA) intends to go on an offensive against Israel at the United Nations and the International Criminal Court (ICC), according to a report by Al Jazeera.

Following a meeting of the executive committee of the Palestinian Liberation Organization Saturday night, the group has stated that Palestinians must “begin devising plans to disengage from the Israeli occupation authorities at the political, security, economic and administrative levels…”

The Palestinian news agency, Wafa, reports that the PLO’s executive committee seeks to “suspend recognition of Israel until the latter recognizes the State of Palestine on the 1967 borders, repeals the decision to annex East Jerusalem and halts settlement activities.”

In a threat to halt ongoing security cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the PLO executive committee called on the Palestinian Authority to “define security relations between the Palestinians and the Israeli occupation.”

Saturday’s announcement comes less than a month after President Donald Trump announced that the United States would officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In a sharp departure from the statements of previous US administrations that called for “two states standing side-by-side in peace and security,” Trump has stated that United States would support a two-state solution if that arrangement is “agreed to by both sides.”

Abbas has sharply criticized Trump’s policies in the PLO executive committee, stating of Trump, “May your house be destroyed.”
