PA Criticizes Netanyahu’s Jordan Valley Wall Plan

RAMALLAH, November 3, 2013 (WAFA) – Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh Sunday said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to build a wall in the Jordan Valley is only a pre-emptive step to thwart the upcoming visit of United States Secretary of State John Kerry to the region.

Abu Rudeineh stressed that settlement activities are illegal and the segregation wall will be taken down and that without the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital there is no peace or stability in the region and Israel will be held responsible for the failure of negotiations.

“The U.S. administration must send a clear message to Netanyahu to stop this nonsense,” he concluded.
