Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas told German Chancellor Angela Merkel Thursday that continued settlement construction will destroy what's left of the peace process, Israel Radio reported.

In their meeting, Abbas updated Merkel on the Jordan-sponsored preparatory peace talks between Israel and the PA, but warned that the process would fall apart if settlers continue torching mosques, uprooting trees and attacking innocent citizens.
