Ya'alon: Israel Will Respond to the PA's UN Bid


Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud) responded on Friday to the approval in the United Nations of 'Palestine' as a non-member observer state. "Israel must respond and it will indeed respond at the most appropriate time," he told Kol Yisrael radio.

"This step is a gross violation of previous agreements, Abbas is so frustrated by terrorism that he is trying to attack us in the political arena. We have no partner for peace because Abbas is not ready to recognize our right to exist on the land of Tel Aviv and Haifa," he added.
