The Palestinian Authority has responded to the upcoming elections for a new Israeli government and dispersal of the Knesset, calling on the international community to keep pressure on Israel to end the "occupation."

"When there is no active Israeli government, all process will cease from all the parties, but that does not cancel the International stand which should continue to put pressure on any Israeli government to work on ending the unjust occupation of the Palestinian Territories," Abdallah Abdallah, a member of PA President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party, said Tuesday night.
