Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Saturday reacted to ongoing protests against the high cost of living in the Palestinian territories by attacking Israel and Hamas.

He also said that he would go the UN General Assembly on September 27 “to consult with friends” about upgrading the status of a Palestinian state in the international agency to non-member.

However, Abbas did not say that he would submit a request to the General Assembly in this regard. No date has been set for filing the application to the UN, he clarified.

Abbas’s remarks were made during a press conference he held in Ramallah.
