Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared Thursday that all signed agreements with Israel, including its ongoing security coordination in the West Bank, would be terminated over “all the violations against our people.”

“We announce the leadership’s decision to stop implementing the agreements signed with the Israeli side,” he said in a speech in the West Bank city of Ramallah, saying Palestinians would immediately form a committee to study how to carry out the decision.

The two governments work together on matters ranging from water to security, and withdrawing from agreements could impact security in the West Bank.

Abbas has made similar threats before and not implemented them, but relations between the West Bank’s Palestinian Authority and its Israeli counterpart have worsened in recent months.
