(Worthy News) - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will host a conference on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly this week to review ways to torpedo the Trump administration’s plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace, Israeli television reported Monday.

The meeting, which Channel 10 said will be held Wednesday, comes in the wake of a series of financial and diplomatic sanctions the United States has enacted against the Palestinians, who it accuses of rebuffing its peace efforts.

The report said countries such as Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom and Germany have been invited to the event and that representatives from some 40 states and international organizations were expected to attend, though it did not say from which nations. The US and Israel were not invited. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
