AMMAN (RAHNUMA): Palestinian officials have begun a wide-ranging campaign to oppose Israeli attempts to annex parts of the occupied Palestinian territories.

Nabil Shaath, political adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, told Arab News: “While the Israeli annexation attempts will put an end to the Oslo process and will be a clear theft of Palestinian lands, there has been strong positions coming out of Arab and European capitals,” he said.

Shaath, a former foreign minister, noted that actions and not words are needed to put a stop to the Netanyahu/Trump alliance: “I call on my friend King Salman, who has always stood with the Palestinian cause, to make known to everyone the simple fact that Palestine is and will continue to be in the heart of every Arab.”

Shaath said that Palestinians will always remember with great pride the historic positions of every Saudi leader.
Shaath spoke about the important unity talks that were triggered by a letter smuggled from jail by Ahmad Saadat, the jailed leader of the left-wing Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

In his letter, Saadat wrote, “I assure the president and our brothers in Fatah that the atmosphere within the leadership of the Front [PFLP] is ready for a positive dialogue that can overcome financial difficulties, which we see as small in comparison with the national challenges facing our people.”
