Palestinian officially launched their UN statehood recognition bid on Thursday, announcing a series of "peaceful events" before the opening of the UN General Assembly on September 20, the Press Association reported Thursday.

The plans were announced in a letter that was submitted to UN chief Ban Ki-moon at a ceremony in Ramallah's UN offices and was attended by about 100 Palestinian officials and national activists, Press Association said.

The letter itself was presented by an elderly Palestinian woman who had reportedly lost a son and had seven other sons serving jail time in Israeli prisons because of terrorist activities. She was chosen, the report said, because her story is representative of the plight of the Palestinian people.
