DFLP leader: Biggest negotiations obstacle is Israel siege

Aug. 15, 2014 10:35 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 15, 2014 10:35 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The deputy secretary general of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine said Friday the biggest obstacle facing ceasefire talks is Israel's refusal to lift the siege on Gaza.

Qais Abd al-Karim, a member of the Palestinian delegation to Cairo, said Israel claims that it has a right to besiege the Strip as long as it is not disarmed.

Abd al-Karim said that Israel demanded all manufacturing of rockets and smuggling of weapons in Gaza Strip cease, which Palestinian negotiators refused.

He added that Hamas informed the delegation of it’s approval of having PA forces at the Rafah crossing.

He explained that the issue with salaries was one of the resolved points in negotiations, and there is no international or Israeli objection to it.
