Abbas spokesman slams Israel for 'settlement crimes'

December 20, 2012 18:35

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for the PA president, declared Thursday that Israel would be held accountable for its "settlement crimes in the Palestinian territories."

"The settlers and the Israeli government must know that they will be held accountable for settlement crimes," Abu Rudaineh said, hinting at the possibility that the PA leadership would lodge a complaint against Israel with the UN's International Criminal Court.

Abu Rudaineh pledged that "not one stone would remain from the hysterical settlement projects in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine."
