Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday said he is against a third Palestinian intifada (uprising) against Israel, even if current attempts to achieve peace fail, according to the Associated Press.

Speaking to reporters in Tunisia, Abbas said that regardless of what happens he "will not accept" a third intifada. Abbas said that the second intifada, which erupted in 200, was "disastrous" for the Palestinian nation.

Abbas explained he remains committed to a US-supported goal of reaching a peace deal with Israel by September.

However, if a deal is not reached, Abbas reiterated the PA's plan to unilaterally seek the support of the United Nations for an independent Palestinian state in September.
