Report: PA Formulates Negotiating Demands

(Jerusalem Post) Khaled Abu Toameh - Israel's Channel 12 reported Tuesday that U.S. President Biden had requested that the PA form a negotiating team to conduct talks with Israel. According to the report, the PA will demand that Israel return to the situation that existed in the West Bank in 2002 before the Second Intifada, which means the IDF would no longer enter Area A of the West Bank to arrest Palestinians involved in terror. The PA will also demand control over additional areas in Area C, which is administered by Israel. A senior PA official in Ramallah said the PA has informed the Biden administration of its readiness to return to the negotiating table with Israel under the umbrella of the Quartet (the U.S., Russia, EU, and UN). Talk about resuming Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations has drawn sharp criticism from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), as well as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
