The Palestinian Authority has decided to beef up security around PA President Mahmoud Abbas out of concern for his life following his speech at the UN General Assembly, Palestinian security sources said Tuesday.

Nimer Hammad, political advisor to Abbas, confirmed that tight security measures have been taken to ensure the PA president's safety.



Hammad said the new measures were taken following Liberman's recent attacks on Abbas.

He claimed that Israel was planning to get rid of Abbas and called on the US to intervene to stop the alleged scheme.
