Abbas warns of ICC action if Israel implements settlement plans

President Mahmoud Abbas warned Tuesday that Palestine would file a petition to the International Criminal Court if Israel follows through on announced plans to build settlements in the flashpoint E1 area of the occupied West Bank.

Speaking at a news conference in Ankara, Abbas said, "Israelís announcement to build settlements on the land of the State of Palestine is an aggressive act and a red line which we will not allow.

"It is a breach of international conventions, namely the Fourth Geneva Convention."

1. Funny ...

 

... I missed the announcement where the borders of the "State of Palestine" were defined and agreed to by both parties. Sounds like Mr Abbas is putting his state before the horse.
