Palestinian officials say UN vote request pulled due to heavy diplomatic pressure

The Ynet news website quotes Palestinian officials as saying the reason the Palestinian Authority has pulled its request for a Security Council resolution against the Trump peace plan is heavy pressure on PA President Mahmoud Abbas and on the members of the UN body.

Meanwhile, the Israel Hayom newspaper quotes sources close to Abbas as saying: “We pulled the request because we didn’t want to humiliate ourselves.”
