A delegation of lawmakers from the dovish Meretz Party received reassurances from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Sunday that as long as he was in charge, his regime would make every effort to prevent terrorism against Israelis.

"What do you want me to do?" Abbas told a group of MKs. "As long as I'm sitting in this chairr, I will not allow harm to come to Israelis. I will continue fighting terrorism and violence with all my might."

The Palestinian leader told his Israeli guests that the PA's security apparatus was "keeping its eyes open during this tense time" - just two days after the arson attack by suspected Jewish extremists that killed a Palestinian toddler near Nablus.

"As long as I'm here, there won't be an Islamic State or a Nusra Front [in the West Bank]," he said.
