2017 "marked the 50th anniversary of Israel's occupation of the [occupied] Palestinian Territories" (OPT), Amnesty noted, "and the 10th anniversary of its illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip". Twenty thousand new work permits will be issued under the plan, raising the total number of PA laborers in pre-1967 Israel to 100,000.

For her part, the USA ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, used her platform to dismiss the UN body, saying it spends a "disproportionate amount of time" discussing the Israeli-Palestinian issue.

"I spoke with some restaurant owners who had come to me asking what they could do if all of their [illegal immigrant] workers from Eritrea and Sudan were deported". Highlighting Palestinian perceptions of bias, she was joined by Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, adviser on Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts, and US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt. Israel considers the entire city, including the eastern sector, to be its undivided capital.

She also said that the United States would not change its decision to move the nation's embassy to Jerusalem from Israel and the matter had already been discussed. "I call upon members who have yet to recognize the state of Palestine to do so". He pursued peace talks with Israel but the negotiations broke down in 2014. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week the plan was "fairly well advanced". But he warned that "after decades of support, the global consensus for a two-state solution could be eroding".

In security camera footage posted on social media and carried by Israeli news sites, soldiers can be seen kicking and striking a man, identified by Palestinian officials as Yassin Omar Serda, after detaining him in the town of Jericho.

Bezeq's controlling shareholder Shaul Elovitch is also in custody, along with his wife, son and other top Bezeq executives. He is accused of receiving lavish gifts from Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan and Australian billionaire James Packer.

"Mr. Abbas, you have made it clear with your words and with your actions that you are no longer part of the solution", he said.

Scheduled to speak after Abbas was Haley - but Abbas left the room before she could begin her speech.

The Palestinian leadership has a choice of two paths - "absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence" which will only lead to hardship for the Palestinian people or "negotiation and compromise" that holds the promise of peace, Haley said.

Nonetheless, Haley explained that the US was determined to push forward with the peace process.

Following the declaration, the Palestinian Authority said that the USA is no longer fit to mediate in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, while the U.S. threatened to cut off UNRWA funding for Palestinian refugees, and to any country that votes against the Jerusalem resolution at the United Nations.
