PA warns Israel against applying sovereignty

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a spokesman for Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, on Monday blasted comments by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who said his government is discussing with the Trump administration a bill which would extend Israeli sovereignty to Judea and Samaria.

In a statement published by the official PA news agency Wafa, Abu Rudeineh said that unilateral measures by Israel on this issue would not change reality because “the entire settlement is illegal.”
