A senior Fatah leader said Wednesday that Israel disappointed Palestinian and Jordanian leaders during talks in Amman Tuesday, and that "popular resistance will be fired off soon," AFP in Arabic reported.

According to the official, Mahmoud Al Aloul, who was speaking in front of hundreds gathered for a rally in Ramallah, the Palestinian Authority had seized the opportunity for the pursuit of peace, responding to the Jordanian initiative.

"These efforts were in vain," the Fatah official said according to AFP, adding that Israeli negotiators came to the meetings "empty handed."

"Israelis disappointed our hopes and Jordan's hopes when their side came empty handed, without any new ideas and without any prepared solutions," Al Aloul said, adding he hoped this would be a year of "popular resistance against Israeli violations."
