The Palestinian news agency Ma’an reprts that Islamic Jihad leader Sheikh Nafeth Azzam on Monday urged PA President Mahmoud Abbas to walk out on negotiations with Israel.
Addressing relatives of detainees at a demonstration outside Red Crescent headquarters in Gaza City, Azzam said it made no sense for Abbas to be sending a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an attempt to break the deadlock in peace negotiations.
“We tell the president that there is no point in sending a letter to the enemy,” Azzam said.
“We hope that the president will be clear about his positions and give up on the approach of the negotiations with Israel,” he added.
