On-site, five times the size of the sector, was supposed to settle the Palestinian refugees. The new state was to be demilitarized and shall be under the full control of the PNA leadership. According to this proposal, Abbas had to abandon claims to the territory ceded to Israel in 1967. The Palestinian enclaves in the West Bank was supposed to preserve their autonomy. Anonymous sources then quoted al-Sisi allegedly said to Abbas that at his age it’s time to think about what he will leave descendants. However, the Palestinian leader rejected the offer.
