Abbas: 2017 will be the year of Palestinian statehood

Abbas tells the Fatah congress in Ramallah that 2017 will be the “year of the Palestinian state, and end of the Israeli occupation.”

He says Fatah will step up “popular peaceful resistance” in all of its forms, and expresses the Palestinian Authority’s opposition to terrorism.
