The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said Tuesday it will boycott the incoming Palestinian Authority unity government, dealing a minor setback to attempts by the rival Fatah and Hamas parties to forge a broad coalition. The PFLP said it was upset that the deal, signed earlier this month in Saudi Arabia, would respect past peace agreements with Israel. The PFLP holds three seats in the Palestinian parliament and had been allocated one seat in the new Cabinet, which is expected to be appointed in the coming weeks. Its decision is expected to have no impact on plans to form the new government.
