Fatah leader: Israeli sanctions will lead to collapse of PA

April 9, 2014 10:48 P.M. (Updated: April 9, 2014 10:48 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Fatah central committee member Azzam al-Ahmad warned on Wednesday that Israeli sanctions will lead to the dismantling of the Palestinian Authority.

Al-Ahmad told Ma'an that the PA will not announce its dismantling outright, but stressed that Israeli actions will "lead to its collapse."

Al-Ahmad's comments come amid a near breakdown in peace talks between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, after Israel refused to release a group of Palestinian prisoners as previously agreed upon if the Palestinians refused to extend talk beyond the deadline at the end of April.

After Palestinian leaders announced that they would accede to 15 international conventions, Israel announced that it would impose sanctions as it considers the move an attempt to seek international recognition and potential intervention by Palestinians.

"The United States and Israel are jointly responsible for the collapse of the PA and its consequences," al-Ahmad said.
