Palestinian Authority (PA), PLO and Fatah President Mahmoud Abbas yesterday reiterated the importance of a "real confrontation" with the Israeli occupation, Palestinian media reported.

In a meeting for the PLO's Executive Committee in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, Abbas stressed the importance of "accelerating the rearrangement of the internal Palestinian situation to reinforce the power of the PA institutions and PLO's unity ahead of ending the internal division."

He also said that "it is important to put an end to attempts to disunite the Palestinians and doubt the Palestinian national programme ratified by the Palestinian National Council."

The meeting discussed the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the repeated settler attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque, the razing of graves at the Islamic Al Yusifiyeh Cemetery and the installation of an elevator at the Ibrahimi Mosque in occupied Hebron to facilitate Jewish settler raids.
