A senior Fatah official has suggested that Israel might focus its efforts on the Syrian peace track in order to pressure Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Israel Radio reported on Sunday. According to the report, the official stressed that Abbas and other senior Palestinian ministers would not bend on their demand that Israel freeze all settlement construction as a precondition for resuming peace talks. The official added that Abbas did not have the authorization to decide on the renewal of talks in the event that Israel refused to comply with a full settlement freeze.
