Palestinians slam Kushner, accuse him of ‘incitement’

  • Kushner says will publish Mideast plan 'soon,' newspaper says

Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina meanwhile said on Saturday that USA efforts, which "ignored" Palestinian positions on issues such as Jerusalem, statehood and refugees, were doomed to fail.

The duke will also visit Ramallah in the West Bank, where he will focus on issues facing refugee communities, as well as meeting Mr Abbas.

Palestinian officials denounced United States envoy Jared Kushner on Sunday over remarks he made during an interview with a Palestinian newspaper, and accused him of "incitement" against Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Kushner's remarks, made in a rare interview with Palestinian newspaper Al Quds, came as he and special envoy Jason Greenblatt were in the region to advance efforts to renew the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The Palestinians accused Israel of using excessive power and various kinds of illegal ammunitions to disperse the demonstrators who approached the fence of the border between eastern Gaza Strip and Israel. They also held talks in Saudi Arabia, which does not recognise Israel but shares its enmity toward Iran.

In his statement Dr.al-Qedra denounced the ongoing Israeli military targeting of medics in the Gaza Strip, and said the soldiers shot two medics, including one woman, and added that at least eight of the wounded Palestinians are children. The spokesman said peace could only be achieved through fulfilling the Palestinian right to statehood.

The US duo have not met with Palestinian officials, who froze all contact with US officials following the Trump administration's December recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "Not sure that Abbas is able to do", said Kushner.

"President Abbas claims that he seeks peace, and there is no reason not to believe him". The status of East Jerusalem, which Palestinians want as the capital of a sovereign Palestinian state, has been at the center of the decades-long struggle for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Kushner said that the peace plan would be unveiled "soon".

Erekat accused the USA administration of attempting to "push forward a plan that consolidates Israel's colonial control over Palestinian land and lives while telling the Palestinian people that money will compensate for our inalienable rights".

It has always been an insurmountable sticking point, in the Palestinian view, that Jewish settlements built by Israel in the West Bank and East Jerusalem bisect what would become an independent Palestinian state.

On Friday, a few thousand Palestinians took part in clashes along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel for a thirteenth consecutive week, with the Gaza health ministry reporting 2,016 injured.

Ahead of William's arrival, the official schedule's reference to east Jerusalem as "in the Occupied Palestinian Territories" sparked anger among right-wing Israeli politicians.

Kushner's direct appeal to the Palestinian people is laughable, given that last month, he blamed Palestinians killed in Gaza for their own deaths.
