      Abbas: Israel Trying to Sabotage Peace Talks


      A spokesman for Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday accused Israel of trying to bring down the peace talks by announcing construction plans on 272 housing units in Judea and Samaria.

      The spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, further attacked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's recent statements against evacuating Hevron and Beit El, claiming that Israeli building is a deliberate attempt to sabotage US Secretary of State John Kerry's "great efforts" to advance peace talks.
