PA to seek UN timetable for Israeli withdrawal

The Palestinian Authority plans to submit an application to the UN Security Council September 15 demanding that the body set a timetable for Israel to withdraw from Palestinian territories, senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath says.

The Arab league will meet September 5 to discuss the move, Palestinian news agency Ma’an reports.

Shaath adds that the PA’s application to the the International Criminal Court is dependent on how the Security Council responds to its request.

“Taking the case to the ICC is conditional upon the Security Council response to our request,” Shaath says, adding that a permanent unity government with Hamas will oversee the reconstruction of Gaza.

Shaath also claims that Israel accepted a ceasefire that didn’t force Hamas to disarm due to pressure from the US.
