Palestinians hail return of Abbas after “historic” flag raising at UN

Hundreds of Palestinians turned out to welcome the return of President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday, following his speech at the United Nations General Assembly.

Abbas told the crowds in Ramallah that he stands behind every word he said on the UN stage, in reference to his threat to stop abiding by the signed agreements with Israel.

On Nov. 29, 2012, the UN General Assembly voted in favor of upgrading the Palestinian representation in the UN to a non-member observer state status.
