Abbas honors official who authored 'apartheid' report

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday awarded the PA’s highest honor to former UN official Rima Khalaf, who authored a UN report that accused Israel of establishing an “apartheid regime.”

According to The Associated Press, Abbas informed Khalaf by phone that she would receive the PA “Medal of the Highest Honor” in recognition of what PA media described as her “courage and support” for the Palestinian people.
