Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared before world leaders at the United Nations that he is no longer bound by agreements signed with Israel, and called on the U.N. to provide international protection for the Palestinian people.
It was Abbas‘ most serious warning yet to that he might walk away from engagement with Israel and dissolve the Palestinian Authority, although he stopped short of accompanying his threat with a deadline, the Associated Press reported.
After his remarks, the Palestinian flag was raised for the first time at the United Nations headquarters on Sept. 30, 2015.
