Speaking on the occasion of the 53rd anniversary of the establishment of Fatah, Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas slammed the Israeli Defense Forces and “settler terrorist groups” for their “crimes” against the Palestinians.
Mahmoud Abbas condemned once again the decision by the US President Donald trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, while vowing to continue all possible political and diplomatic efforts to create an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, based on the 1967 borders, Times of Israel reports.
“We will not accept the status quo. We will not accept the apartheid system. We will not accept occupation without cost, and you [Israel] must rethink your aggressive policies and actions against our people, our land and our holy places before it is too late,” Mahmoud Abbas said.
