Report: PA Rejects Israel’s Security Demands
The renewed negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) have revealed that the deep divide between each side’s proposed solution, which caused previous talks to break down continues to be an issue, the Arab-language daily Al-Hayat reports.
According to the report, the Israeli team involved in the secret negotiations created a proposal for a PA state along provisional borders. The proposal would allow Israel to maintain control over the Jordan Valley, and border crossings with Jordan, for 40 years.
