Abbas threatens legal, diplomatic action against Israel settlements
Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas threatened diplomatic and legal action against the "cancer" of Israeli settlement building, a day ahead of a visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

 

"We will not remain patient as the settlement cancer spreads, especially in (east) Jerusalem, and we will use our right as a UN observer state by taking political, diplomatic and legal action to stop it," he said during a speech in Ramallah to mark the 49th anniversary of the founding of the Fatah party.
