133 Palestinian NGOs Reject PA's Decision to Restart Talks

133 Palestinian NGOs Reject PA's Decision to Restart Talks with Israel

GAZA, (PIC)-- The Palestinian NGO network said it is deeply concerned about the Palestinian authority's decision to return to the negotiation table with the Israeli occupation.

In a press release on Monday, the network, which include 133 member organizations, stated that the gravity of such a decision that it was taken without any commitment to the minimum requirements, most importantly, the establishment of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders and the termination of settlement activities.

The network criticized the PA for its decision to backtrack on its intention to join international organizations including the international criminal court in exchange for its talks with the Israeli regime.

It also expressed its fears that the PA-Israeli negotiations would undermine the boycott campaign against Israel, which started to bear fruit following the decision of the European union to ban dealing with settlements and Israeli companies operating within 1967 borders.

"It is clear to all that the occupation state is persistent in building settlement units, expanding settlements, annexing lands and Judaizing Jerusalem despite its approval to resume the negotiations," the NGOs underscored.
