Al-Hayat: Abbas foiled efforts to reach long-term truce in Gaza

Abbas truce

Palestinian Authority (PA) president Mahmoud Abbas has reportedly frustrated Egyptian and UN efforts to broker a long-term truce agreement between Israel and Hamas.

According to a report Friday in the London-based daily Al-Hayat newspaper, Abbas threatened international and Arab parties that he would sever all ties with Israel if a long-term ceasefire deal bypassing the PA and Abbas’s Fatah party was reached with Hamas.

Abbas’s threat has prompted Egypt, which was making efforts recently along with the UN to cement a deal in Gaza, to redouble its efforts toward internal Palestinian reconciliation and set aside for the time being the Israel-Hamas deal.
