Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Monday welcomed a study on Palestinian and Israeli textbooks used in school, saying the research shows its "conclusions are not in line with its standing preconceived positions," Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

Fayyad also said he had instructed the Ministry of Education to study the report and use its recommendations as a guide for updating its curriculum, Ma'an reported.

The textbook project, which began in 2009, was funded by a grant from the US State Department and was conducted by an Israeli-Palestinian team of academics led by Professors Bruce Wexler of Yale University, Daniel Bar-Tal of Tel Aviv University and Sami Adwan of Bethlehem University.
