Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced the cessation of operations in accordance with the agreements signed with Israel and the establishment of a committee to implement a decision in accordance with the decisions of the PLO Central Council Thursday evening.
Abbas said that the PA would not agree to have dictates imposed on them and to establish a reality on the ground by means of force, especially in Jerusalem. “The Israeli moves are illegal and void,” he said.
