BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Senior Palestinian Authority officers were awarded certificates in diplomatic protocol on Thursday at the presidential compound in Ramallah.

President Mahmoud Abbas' chief of staff Hussein al-Araj, Italian Consul Roberto Storaci and Consul-General Giampaolo Cantini attended the ceremony, the Italian Technical Assistance Unit said in a statement.
