Israel Responsible for Peace Failure, says PLO

RAMALLAH, May 13, 2014 (WAFA) – Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) said, in a statement on the 66th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, that the Israeli government undermined peace by disclaiming the Palestinian national rights, including the right for statehood and the right of return of the refugees.


“Although the Palestinian national movement, represented by the PLO which is the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people, gained international legitimacy, Israel still undermines the basis of the Palestinian state,” said the PLO statement.


Despite the fact Palestinians exerted maximum efforts to make peace a success and to advance the two-state solution, Israeli far-right dismissed the Palestinian national rights, said the statement.


The statement recalled the suffering of hundreds of thousands Palestinian who, during the Nakba in 1948, were forced out of their land and homes by Jewish organizations, and  are still living in camps in the Diaspora until this moment.
