Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Oct. 8, 2018

 
     “At its meeting yesterday [Oct. 7, 2018] in Ramallah, led by [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas, the [PLO] Executive Committee repeated its previous decisions and that which was said in President [Abbas’] speech before the [UN] General Assembly – in other words, resistance to the American administration being a partner or mediator in the peace process. It considered [the administration] part of the problem and not part of the solution… [The committee] emphasized its pride in the legendary resolve of our brave prisoners, who are continuing in their struggle and in their defiance towards the Israeli jailor in all areas. It also emphasized that it will continue to take care of the families of the Martyrs (Shahids), the prisoners, and the wounded, regardless of how much the American administration and the Israeli government exaggerate in the policy of blackmail and thuggery.”
