PLO suspends recognition of Israel, Israeli forces 10s in West Bank and Jerusalem al-Quds

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - These arrests were carried out as the Palestine Liberation Organization’s central council voted to suspend its recognition of Israel and terminate all agreements with the regime.

The PLO keeps on the suspension until Tel Aviv recognizes a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

On Monday also the Israeli forces invaded West Bank and arrested 26 people. The regime troops also shot dead one Palestinian and injured 80 others, north of Gaza Strip.

The PLO announced the decision late Monday at the end of a two-day meeting in Ramallah. A committee will now be created to examine the recommendation, which would also need the approval of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Organization has urged the Palestinian Authority to halt all its commitments to the ‘occupation authorities’, including its security cooperation and trade agreements with the regime, until they meet the demands.

The PLO council essentially wants to cease compliance with the 1993 Oslo Accord, which set out a transitory phase during which the Palestinians would move toward statehood.

The council has declared that this transitory phase, which was only supposed to last for five to seven years, is over. It insisted that Palestinian statehood must be recognized now.
