The third daily, al-Hayat al-Jadida, talked about the strike the East Jerusalem schools want to observe in protest against attempts by Israel to force the students to learn from distorted textbooks instead of using the official Palestinian textbooks.

It also said that President Abbas left Ireland yesterday heading to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly meetings. It printed a picture of the President and the Palestinian delegation talking with the Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney in Ireland before their departure.

The paper also said the head of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach has arrived in Palestine on a two-day visit.

It had a report about the discovery of a mosaic in the Gaza Strip.

Al-Quds said Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh traveled to London to represent President Abbas at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth.
