Ramallah, April 23 (IANS) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that the agreements reached with Israel and the US will be “absolutely null” if the former annexes any part of the Palestinian territories.
“We informed all the concerned international parties, including both Israel and the U.S. that we will not stay handcuffed if Israel annexes any part of our territory,” Abbas said in a televised speech on Wednesday.
He noted that all concerned political and legal establishments “act to defend our existence and confront all unjust conspiracies, which target our rights, mainly the American Deal of the Century and the Israeli annexation plans”, reports Ainhua news agency.
On Monday, a unity government was formed in Israel.
The agreement on the unity government includes a mutually accepted point to impose Israeli sovereignty on the territories “that are part of the historic lands of Israel”.
Meanwhile, Abbas affirmed that the precautionary measures which were taken to combat the spread of coronavirus pandemic will be valid during the holy Muslims’ fasting month of Ramzan.
“Mosques and churches will keep being shut down and we call on our people to stay home because our health is a priority that we must keep it,” said Abbas.
