PLO wants UN Security Council to censure Israel over settlement construction
Palestinians will also ask General Assembly to implement Geneva Convention in the PA-controlled territories.

By Avi Issacharoff

The PLO will ask the United Nations Security Council to denounce Israel following the continued construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the movement's executive committee decided on Wednesday.

Executive committee member Hana Amira said yesterday the PLO will also ask the UN General Assembly to implement the Geneva Convention in the Palestinian territories and send a delegation to examine Israeli infringements on Palestinians' rights, he said.

Amira told Al Ayyam newspaper the PLO decided to go to the Security Council in view of the ongoing construction in the settlements and the sabotaging of every possibility of reaching a two-state solution.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told the PLO leadership that he had agreed with Hamas leader Khaled Meshal on five central issues at their recent meeting in Cairo, Amira said.

can we have the UN denounce Fatah for the missile strike in to Israel earlier today? After all Fatah is the ruling party of the PA.
