Palestinian Official: Arafat Has ‘Limited Hope’ for Peace with Israel

Published November 21st, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has "limited hope" for returning to peace negotiations with Israel, senior Palestinian negotiator and security official Mohammed Dahlan told AFP on Tuesday. 

"The Palestinian president has limited hope that the peace process can return to its normal state and the Israelis must not kill this hope," Dahlan said. 

The comments came only one day after Israel unleashed its most severe bombardment of a Palestinian-run area in the almost eight weeks of unrest, pounding the Gaza Strip in retaliation for the killing of two Jewish settlers on a school bus in Gaza -- GAZA CITY (AFP)
