Abbas Threatens to Annul Accords, Dismantle PA


Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has threatened to disregard the stipulations of the Oslo Accords and unilaterally declare a Palestinian state. Abbas admitted that it would not be an independent state, but rather a “government under occupation.”

Abbas’ declaration, should it come to pass, would lead to the removal of PA governing forces from the western front. Israel would assume responsibility for the security of the region, and the region would be exposed to international claims.
