Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has instructed the Palestinian delegate to the UN bring forward the issue of Israeli building on land captured during the Six Days War for debate in the United Nations Security Council, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

"Something must be done on the international level to halt the settlement expansion which the Israeli government is undertaking in the West Bank, including Jerusalem," Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah told Reuters on Wednesday.

According to the Reuters' report, Abbas instructed the Palestinian delegate to the UN, Riyad Mansour, to enlist full-fledged Arab members states in the General Assembly to request that the issue be discussed in the Security Council.
