Palestinian FM: Soldier killed in Hebron does not justify evading talks
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki addressed the Hebron shooting attack Sunday night which killed Staff Sergeant Gal Kobi, saying that the killing of an Israeli soldier was not motive for evading the requirements of the peace process.


Al-Maliki stressed that both sides are committed to releasing Palestinian prisoners in the second round of talks, which are expected to take place next month. In addition, he noted that no meeting is expected to take place between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN General Assembly this week. (Elior Levy)
