PA daily refers to Israel as “the ’48 territories”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Sept. 26, 2011

 
     "Groups of extremist Jews infiltrated the Old City of Jerusalem yesterday, in provocative processions which passed through many of the streets of Jerusalem on the way to the Al-Buraq Wall (Western Wall) plaza, in order to celebrate the Hebrew New Year… These groups tried to hold one procession after another around the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, against the background of calls by leaders of the extremist Jewish right-wing to break into the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to lay the cornerstone there for the alleged Temple… Israeli occupation forces detained a truck loaded with wood, belonging to Abd Al-Fatah Yusuf Abu Bakr, from the village of Yaabad in the southern part of Jenin district. Abu Bakr stated that the occupation forces had detained the truck since yesterday evening, with the excuse that it is prohibited to bring wood from the '48 territories (i.e., Israel) into Palestinian Authority territories for use in the coal industry."
