Abbas: Israel seeks chaos in Palestinian territories

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said on Monday that Israel was deliberately seeking to stoke unrest in the occupied West Bank, but that Palestinians would not be provoked. "The Israelis want chaos and we know it but we won't let them,"

 

Abbas said in comments at his West Bank headquarters, seemingly in response to an Israeli demand on Sunday that he calm a wave of protest in the territory. (AFP)
