Ramallah, 6 Rabi’ul Awwal 1437/17 December 2015 (MINA) – Representatives of the International Quartet Committee are set to meet the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership in Ramallah on Thursday, in a move dubbed by observers as “an attempt to revive the peace process and stifle the flames of the ongoing anti-occupation Intifada”.
According to Israel’s public broadcast, the International Quartet delegation, which arrived in the occupied Palestinian territories on Wednesday, met the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu over possible ways to boost the peace process and stop the ongoing Jerusalem Uprising, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The Quartet delegation is expected to meet the PA leadership in Ramallah, the same source added.
Experts in the Palestinian-Israeli affairs branded the move a camouflaged endeavor to prop up peace talks and rein in the anti-occupation uprising.
Two projected stopovers to be carried out by the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, in the next couple of months, also fall in line within the same attempts, observers pointed out.
For some other experts, such stopovers might rather serve as stimuli for the Jerusalem Uprising by bringing the Palestinian cause to the forefront and drawing the world closer to the inherently anti-colonialist nature of the Palestinian struggle.(T/P008/R04)
