Peri: Increase in West Bank violence doesn't equate 3rd intifada

There has been a slight increase in violence in the West Bank, however it does not equate a third intifada, Science, Technology and Space Minister Ya'akov Peri said Monday.

He added that there was a cautious optimism surrounding the current negotiations with the Palestinians and the coming two months would be "critical" to the process.
