Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced the country will be ceasing all arrangements with the Zionist entity and the US in light of Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s annexation plans.

"The Palestine Liberation Organization and the State of Palestine are absolved, as of today, of all the agreements and understandings with the American and ‘Israeli’ governments and of all the obligations based on these understandings and agreements, including the security ones," Abbas said at a leadership meeting in Ramallah.

The announcement comes in response to plans by Netanyahu to annex Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, that were outlined in US President Donald Trump’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ that was announced in January.

Abbas made clear he sees ‘Israel’ as an “occupying power”.

"The ‘Israeli’ Occupation Authority must now carry all its obligations as an occupying power of Palestinian lands. It must bear all the consequences, and international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention also impose on the Occupying Authority the responsibility of caring for residents under occupation,” Abbas said.

Agreements that the PA now considers null and void include the Oslo Accords [1993], Hebron [al-Khalil] Agreement [1997] and Wye River Agreement [1998], which established security parameters between the PA and the ‘Israeli’ occupation entity in the West Bank.

Abbas was just as accusatory of the US, calling it a “key partner” to ‘Israel’ and saying he places “full responsibility” on the Trump administration for “the occupation of the Palestinian people.”
