A senior Palestinian Liberation Organization official on Friday described Sudan's decision to take steps to normalize relations with Israel as a "new stab in the back" for the Palestinians.
"Sudan's joining others who normalized ties with the state of the Israeli occupation represents a new stab in the back of the Palestinian people and a betrayal of the just Palestinian cause," said Wasel Abu Youssef, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Speaking in Ramallah in the West Bank Abu Youssef, a member of the PLO's Executive Committee, said the African state's decision to follow Gulf Arab states the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain "will not shake the Palestinians' faith in their cause and in continuing their struggle."
