GAZA, March 24 (Xinhuanet) -- Palestinian radical group Islamic Jihad called on Thursday for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to stop holding security meetings with Israel.
Khaled al-Batch, a Jihad leader, told reporters that the past Palestinian experience with occupation showed that the meetings didn't stop Israel from carrying out the repressive policies against the Palestinians.
He added the meetings would give an impression that situation in the Palestinian territories is all right though Israel continue to break the calmness by incursions, arresting and firing at the Palestinians.
Commenting on the Arab summit which ended in Algiers Wednesday, al-Batch said that the summit did not present anything new to the Palestinians apart from relaunching the 2002 Arab peace initiative which offered Israel peace and normal relations in return for withdrawal to 1967 borders. Enditem
