Abbas spokesman says Netanyahu's comments 'hinder peace efforts'

JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's vow to never evacuate Jewish settlements in the West Bank drew outrage from Palestinians Tuesday.


Nabil Abu Rdeneh, spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, denounced Netanyahu's comments and said they hinder US peace efforts.


"This is an Israeli message to the US administration," he said. "We call upon the US administration to deal with these provocations," which, he said, hinder American peace efforts and are "an attempt to return things to square one."
