RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Hundreds have protested outside the PLO headquarters Monday condemning the meeting held last week in Ramallah between Fatah and PA leaders and representatives of the Israeli Likud and Shas parties.
Palestinian trade unions and national leaders have called earlier to protest against such meeting outside PLO headquarters in Ramallah.
The protesters have accused PLO secretary general, Yasser Abed Rabbo, and former prisoners minister Ashraf Ajrami of treason after attending a meeting in the presence of leaders of Israeli ruling parties.
For his part, Jamal al-Tawil, a leader in Hamas movement, said during the demonstration that last week meeting constitutes a violation of the Palestinian people’s will and rights.
During the meeting Yasser Abed Rabbo wished a speedy recovery for Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual leader of Israel’s Shas party who has called more than once for killing Palestinian babies, al-Tawil said.
In a meeting last week set up by the Geneva Initiative, members of the ruling right-wing Likud Party and Shas party met with PLO Secretary-General Yasser Abed Rabbo and several other senior PA officials in Ramallah.
