Palestinian security officer killed in Gaza Strip; PA rejects Sharon comments on ''incitement''
A Palestinian officer was killed by Israel Defense Forces fire east of the Jabalya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip on Friday evening, Palestinian sources reported. According to the sources, the officer was killed by tank fire.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian National Authority on Friday rejected Ariel Sharon's new terms for restarting peace contacts. Sharon on Thursday said the new Palestinian leadership should end the "incitement" against Israel and change the PA's education system.
"(The Israelis) should begin by abandoning their policy of setting conditions and stop their incitement," Palestinian cabinet minister Saeb Erekat told Reuters in response.
Asked about the "incitement," Palestine Liberation Organization leader Mahmoud Abbas said "Maybe we have issues of this kind, but they have them to a greater extent," Abbas told reporters. (albawaba.com)
