The Palestinian Authority is considering taking legal action against Israeli leaders and settlers who practice “terrorism” against the Palestinian people, Palestinian news agency Maan quoted legal adviser to President Mahmoud Abbas as saying on Friday.

Hasan al-Auri told Ma’an that the PA may seek to sue Israeli officials in international courts, and to prosecute settlers in national courts in countries where it is allowed to prosecute foreigners, according to the news site.
