Palestinian sources said that US Secretary of State John Kerry would meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Amman on Friday evening.

The sources said that Abbas was waiting to hear from Kerry about the outcome of his talks in Germany with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

The sources said that Abbas would brief Kerry about the current situation in the West Bank and east Jerusalem in wake of the recent wave of violence.

According to the sources, Abbas will make it clear that that the only way to end the violence is by halting Israel’s latest measures, including attempts to “change the status quo” at the Temple Mount.

Abbas will also repeat his demand for international protection for the Palestinians and hold Israel fully responsible for the violence, the sources said. They added that Abbas would also reiterate his readiness to resume peace talks with Israel as long as the Israeli government remains committed to the signed agreements with the Palestinians.
