Palestine cancels 1995 Oslo Accords signed with Israel
Move comes after US president unveils so-called peace plan
“Israel has been informed that the Palestinian administration will not adhere to the agreements between them,” the Palestinian Authority’s Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein al-Sheikh said in a televised interview with Al-Jazeera.
Sheikh also expressed hope that Arab and Islamic countries will be a force that supports the Palestinian attitude.
At the request of Palestine, the Arab League will hold an extraordinary meeting at the ministerial level on Feb. 1 to discuss the so-called peace plan.
On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump released his much-hyped plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian dispute during a press conference at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side.
There was, however, no Palestinian representative at the announcement, which saw Trump referring to Jerusalem as "Israel's undivided capital".
Trump’s so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and has drawn criticism for giving Israel almost everything it demanded.
Area C is currently home to 300,000 Palestinians, the vast majority of whom are Bedouins and herding communities who predominantly live in tents, caravans and caves.
International law views the West Bank and East Jerusalem as "occupied territories" and considers all Jewish settlement-building activity there illegal.
