Nablus - Ma'an - Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) member and attorney Ghassan Ash Shak'ah affirmed his participation in unofficial talks with Israeli civil affairs representatives on the subject of cancelling the order to close the Nablus mall.

Ash Shak'ah called the officials and popular resistance movement in Nablus "courageous" and congratulated them on their persistence. The work of everyone around the issue resulted in a quick resolution to the illegal closure order issued by Israeli forces.

Explaining his own involvement in the process in an interview with Ma'an, Ash Shak'ah explained that he attended a meeting on the issue with a representative of the Palestinian department of civil affairs, a member of the PLO executive committee and an Israeli official from a civil affairs bureau. He confirmed that the governor of Nablus was not involved with the meetings.

Ash Shak'ah affirmed that the original decision was "illegal" in the first place and was an example of the continued violations of International law perpetrated by the Israeli government. Moreover, he said, the initial order violated previous agreements between the PLO and Israel.
