Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Thursday that Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are not terrorist organizations.

The comments came as Erekat was speaking at the United Nations Forum to Mark Fifty Years of Occupation event held at the UN headquarters in New York.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon on Wednesday accused the UN of “colluding with supporters of terrorism seeking to harm Israel,” ahead of the two-day event.
