Mahmoud Abbas: Settlements for prisoners will explode situation
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas spoke in Ramallah and said there was no progress in negotiations with Israel. "Nothing is going on, and there may be tensions soon as Israel says, 'We have released prisoners, so we will increase the construction of settlements.’ This equation explodes the situation."


He threatened that if Israel deport prisoners in the upcoming phases in which there are expected to be released Israeli Arabs and residents of east Jerusalem, then the Palestinians will turn to international bodies. (Elior Levy)
