History was made this week at the UN as President Mahmoud Abbas delivered the Palestinian bid for statehood and received a standing ovation as he addressed the General Assembly. Cheering crowds gathered in Ramallah to give him a hero's welcome as he arrived from New York. Addressing the rally he declared the beginning of the Palestinian spring. When he spoke to the UN assembly on Friday jubilant scenes played out across the Palestinian territories. But words quickly turned to violence on the West Bank border, culminating in clashes between police and Palestinians. RT's Paula Slier has the story.
To discuss this story RT joined live from Ramallah by political activist Noor Odeh.
