Israel halts peace talks with Palestinians

by Blogburger on April 24, 2014

Gaza's Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, right, shows a copy of a singed agreement while siting next to senior Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmad during their press conference after the announcement of an agreement between the two rival Palestinian groups, Hamas and Fatah, at Haniyeh's residence in Shati Refugee Camp, Gaza Strip, Wednesday, April 23, 2014. Hamas and Fatah made a new attempt Wednesday to overcome the Palestinians' political split, saying they would seek to form an interim unity government within five weeks, followed by general elections by December at the earliest. It was not clear how the new attempt announced Wednesday would succeed where previous ones failed, since the fundamental difficulties remain in place. (AP Photo/Adel Hana)JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel broke off Mideast peace talks and brought the U.S.-brokered process to the brink of collapse Thursday, protesting a reconciliation agreement between the Western-backed Palestinian Authority and the militant group Hamas, the Jewish state's sworn enemy.
