Israel's intensified operations in the Gaza Strip pose doubt in the country's desire to make peace with the Palestinians, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas claimed on Wednesday afternoon, Israel Radio reported. In a statement released by Abbas's office, the chairman asserted that Israel's continued policy would ensure that the negotiations and the peace process bear no fruit. A similar statement was made by PA Minister for Prisoner Affairs Ashraf al-Ajrami, who accused Israel of carrying out operations in Gaza to undermine the Palestinian government. According to Ajrami, Israeli action in the Strip was intended to sabotage efforts made by PA Prime Minister Salaam Fayad's government to achieve security in the Palestinian territories. The two officials were referring to IAF air strikes on Gaza over the last two days during which six Palestinians, including a senior Hamas commander and three Islamic Jihad operatives, were killed in various counter-terror operations.
