Palestinian negotiator Qureia suspends talks with Israel over Israeli attacks in Gaza
Ahmed Qureia announced in Ramallah Sat. March 1 that peace talks with Israel were suspended. Jerusalem: This step contradicts Palestinian and Israeli commitment to fight terror regardless peace negotiations. Israel did not break off talks over Palestinian missile offensive against civilians. It is entitled to defend itself and determine the proportionality of its response to aggression.
Earlier, Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas condemned Israel’s response to Palestinian missile attacks is “worse than a holocaust.” Hamas’ politburo chief Khaled Meshaal called a news conference in Damascus and repeated the term “holocaust.”
debkafile: The peace track was not robust or authentic enough to weather Israel’s first serious response to Palestinian missile terrorism.
