Angered at the Arab world’s growing ties with Israel, the Palestinian leadership has quit their chairmanship of Arab League meetings, the Palestinian Authority’s foreign minister announced on Tuesday.

“Palestine has decided to concede its right to chair the League’s council [of foreign ministers] at its current session. There is no honor in seeing Arabs rush towards normalization during its presidency,” said P.A. Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki in Ramallah, reported Reuters.

Palestinians are enraged that the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed normalization agreements with Israel in Washington, D.C. without being condemned by the Arab League.

Meanwhile, officials from the Fatah Party led by P.A. head Mahmoud Abbas and the terrorist group Hamas were scheduled to hold talks on improving their cooperation in Turkey on Tuesday, the report said.
