Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday that Israel was responsible for the current wave of violence because of its “violations against our holy sites” in Jerusalem.

Abbas, who speaking during a meeting with scores of Fatah activists from the West Bank, accused the Israeli government of protecting settlers who attack Palestinians and failing to honor signed agreements with the Palestinians.

“The Israeli government is allowing its settlers to attack our holy sites and people,” Abbas said. “Fatah will remain the spinal column of the Palestinian revolution and lead the struggle of liberation through peaceful resistance.”
