Israeli troops open fire on Palestinian protesters near the border between "Israel" and Central Gaza Strip
PA decision to resume talks does not represent the people’s will
Al Qassam website - The Palestinian government in Gaza Strip has considered the PA's decision to resume talks with the Israelis a “betrayal” that does not represent the Palestinian people’s will.
Dr. Yousef Rizqa, Political Adviser to the Palestinian Prime Minister, strongly condemned the PA acceptance to resume talks under Israeli and US conditions, saying that it came in total contradiction to the Palestinian people and factions' will.
He confirmed that these illegitimate and illegal talks will provide a cover to the Israeli settlement schemes.
“There's nothing new in Kerry's latest peace proposals”, Rizka said. He opined that the US efforts were exploiting current developments in the Arab region to pressure the Palestinians to accept the peace talks’ proposal.
Kerry has met with eleven Arab foreign ministers in Amman in order to gain support for his proposals, he noted.
Rizqa pointed to the PA misleading media campaign that promotes the PA keenness to gain a US vow that negotiations would be based on a return to 1967 borders.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared the resumption of peace talks between the Palestinian and Israeli parties, noting that two delegations will start negotiations soon in Washington.
