The head of the Palestinian national authority Mahmoud Abbas said Ramallah would not resume cooperation with Israel in security until, until you have to dismantle the metal detectors at Temple mount.
The Palestinian news Agency Wafa reported that this statement was made during a meeting of Mahmoud Abbas and members of the 2nd National Congress of scholars of Palestine.
Mahmoud Abbas has called Israel’s actions illegal, violate the rights of Muslims. «Israel would like to fight terror with our help. He needs us and relies on us. But it is not fulfilling its obligations, and we can’t understand it.»
Earlier, defense Minister of Israel Avigdor Lieberman has demanded that the Palestinian authority condemn the attack. Commenting on the decision of Ramallah to stop cooperating in the field of security, he said that Israel will cope without the Palestinian leadership. And if anyone loses from this decision, it is only Ramallah.
