The sixth Fatah General Assembly decreed on Saturday that the return of both east and west Jerusalem to Palestinian control was a "red line" which was nonnegotiable, and would need to be fulfilled before any peace talks with Israel could renew, Israel Radio reported. According to the report, a document adopted by the delegates of the assembly declared that Fatah would "continue to sacrifice victims until residents of Jerusalem are free of settlements and settlers." The document went on to state that all of Jerusalem, including the surrounding villages, belonged to the Palestinians, and lands conquered following the Six-Day war shared the same status as those located within the green line.
