Palestinian President Threatens to Take 'Strategic Decisions' in Wake of Israeli Aggression

During a meeting on Sunday to address Israeli aggression in the West Bank, the Palestinian leadership warned to make strategic decisions. The conference was called by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The presidency warned that it would carry out the Central Council's February resolutions, which included suspending recognition of Israel.

Hussein al-Sheikh, a Fatah Central Committee member and member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's (PLO) Executive Committee, has condemned Israel's aggression against Palestinians, emphasising that the ongoing "massacre cannot be permitted."

He condemned the Israeli government's orders to its troops to kill Palestinians without mercy, holding it completely responsible for the consequences of its aggression, which is being carried out under international cover.

He urged all Palestinian factions, including Hamas, to come together and unite in the face of Israel's hostile efforts. Sheikh did not specify what strategic decisions the leadership would make at the meeting on Sunday.

However, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the official spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, hinted towards the implementation of the Central Council resolutions.

"United Nations resolutions alone are no longer sufficient, and the occupation is bringing things to a halt," he emphasised.

The Palestinian Central Council voted in February to withhold recognition of Israel until Tel Aviv acknowledges a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 boundary. It also determined to terminate all commitments to agreements struck with Israel, as well as any types of security coordination with it.

However, sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that the judgments will not be made on Sunday. Instead, Abbas may warn that continued aggressiveness will inevitably lead to their gradual implementation.
