If Palestinians declare statehood, a precursor to which is declartion of soveriegnty over said land. that would mean, if this land conflicted with what Israel considers its land would give rise to a war. For example, Jerusalem, Palestnians claiming that this is their land and their capital will cause a war. The final status of this is to be determined from negotiations not unilateral declaration of statehood in an area where they have no military power enforcing thier sovereignty. To pose a question, what if Mexico, made a unilateral declaration of statehood for California and Texas? Would the USA not consider this an act of war? Or is it only an act of war should USA residents in California and Texas not wish to leave their union and join the 3rd world in Mexico?
