Palestine Liberation Organization calls for cutting ties with Israel


The Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) called on the Palestinian authorities to severe ties with Israel at all levels, including security and politics, a committee said in a statement, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

The committee urged the Palestinian authorities to "immediately start preparing plans and projects aimed at severing ties with the Israeli authorities at the level of politics, governance, economy and security," the statement read.

 

Moreover, the PLO Executive Committee decided to "refer to the UN Security Council, General Assembly and the International Criminal Court [ICC], asking them to refuse to recognize the state of Israel until it renounces the recognition of Jerusalem as its capital."


According to the statement, the PLO is planning to refer to the ICC with a request "to start an investigation into Israeli settlements, racial discrimination and an ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem and its surroundings that is being hushed up."


The statement comes ahead of a reported meeting between Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah next week.
