Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday night that Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority were on the verge of total annihilation, since there was no cease-fire agreement that both Arab countries and Europe supported. Abbas added that the Palestinians would not accept any accord that did not include an independent Palestinian state whose capital was Jerusalem and a "fair outcome" with regards to Palestinian refugees and Jewish settlements. The PA chairman made the comments in Algiers where he is expected to meet with top Algerian officials including Algerian President Abdulaziz Bouteflika.
