Palestinians watch a live-screening of president Mahmoud Abbas' speech followed by the raising of the Palestinian flag at the United Nations headquarters in New York, in the West Bank city of Nablus on September 30, 2015. Earlier in the week the UN General Assembly, by a two-thirds vote, adopted a resolution allowing the flags of Palestine and the Holy See ''both of which have non-member observer status'' to be hoisted alongside those of member states.
