Qatari FM: Israel Thwarted Kerry's Initiative

Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammad Al Attiyah accused Israel on Sunday of thwarting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s initiative for a seven-day humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.

Speaking to  the Al-Hayat newspaper, Al Attiyah said, “We were at the end of a positive discussion when Israel announced that it rejects Kerry’s initiative. The refusal came before we reached a position on the issue.”
