MK Peri: The PA Wants Peace

MK Yaakov Peri (Yesh Atid), a former head of the Shin Bet, said Monday that he believes the current Palestinian Authority leadership wants peace. Israel should begin negotiations now, he told Reshet Bet, because there is no way to know if the PA leadership will ever be more amenable to peace than it is at the present time.

An agreement with the PA is among Israel’s existential needs, he added.

Peri was one of those interviewed for the controversial documentary The Gatekeepers.
