Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat urged Israel to stop building Jewish settlements over the Green Line, on land the Palestinians want for a future state and to halt house demolitions, which rights groups view as a form of collective punishment.

But Erekat, standing beside US Secretary of State Kerry in a meeting Saturday in Ramallah, also made a case for peace directly to the Palestinians.

"No one benefits more from the success of Secretary Kerry's efforts than Palestinians and no one stands to lose more (from) failure than Palestinians," he said.
