The Palestinian Authority is planning to declare the Oslo Accords null and void, a move that would effectively cede day-to-day control of West Bank towns to the Israeli military, according to a report by the Palestinian Ma'an news agency.

The report, which was posted on the Ma'an web site shortly after midnight on Sunday, quotes a senior Ramallah official, Ahmed Majdalani, as saying that the interim administration would declare that it no longer saw itself as bound to the Oslo Accords as well as the Sharm el-Sheikh agreement of 1994.

The latter, which was negotiated by the Rabin administration, gave the newly created Palestinian Authority powers that dealt with daily civilian life in towns and villages. It also spelled out joint security arrangements between the PA and Israeli forces.
