PA Threatens to Sue Israel Over Building Tenders
The Palestinian Authority threatened Wednesday to sue Israel through international bodies if it continues expanding Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, warning that they would put an end to talks unless building in Jewish areas came to a halt.
Israeli and Palestinian Authority negotiators held a new round of peace talks in Jerusalem on Tuesday, their second since the resumption of direct negotiations in Washington late last month.
But accoring to Ashrawi, "There has been no breakthrough and no agreement. Discussions have not been on specifics."
