PA Weighs ‘State of Palestine’ Passport

The Palestinian Authority is working to make the most of its symbolic UN victory with a passport upgrade that would make its passports “state” documents. A senior PA official revealed the plans in an interview with Al-Quds newspaper.

The change to “state” status is important because it shows that “the state of Palestine is occupied,” he said.
