The Palestinian president lay blame on Israel for the recent violence. “We say to the Israelis: Stop building in the settlements and come to the negotiating table,” he said. “We will be willing to return to negotiations and discuss the agreements that have been violated and neglected by Israel since Oslo and until now.
“We are committed to these agreements, but it is unreasonable for us to be the only ones who are committed to them,” he continued. “If Israel does not want these agreements, we do not want to implement them.
“All our instructions to our agencies, our factions and our youth have been that we do not want escalation, but we do want to protect ourselves.”
