Abbas on Israeli election day: ‘Our hands remain extended in peace’

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says “our hands remain extended in peace” in a statement for Israel’s election day.

Speaking in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Tuesday, Abbas says the Palestinian leadership hopes the outcome would help Israel “come to the negotiating table” and embark “on the right track to reach peace.”

But Abbas stresses that Palestinians would reject peace brokered by US President Donald Trump’s administration.
