"They are working and trying to work hard in a regime change, because Palestinian leadership under the leadership of President Abbas wants genuine, lasting, comprehensive peace, based on worldwide law", Erekat added.

Palestinian officials, who want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state, accused Mr Kushner of trying to undermine Mr Abbas and what they described as their leader's moderate camp.

Nabil Sha'ath, a former PA foreign minister who now serves as an "international affairs adviser" to Abbas, accused Kushner and Greenblatt of "working on behalf of Israel in the White House".

In the interview, Kushner criticized Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and tried to appeal to the Palestinian people directly instead.


Abbas has refused to see Trump's team since the embassy decision, accusing Washington of pro-Israel bias.

"The global community is getting frustrated with Palestinian leadership and not seeing many actions that are constructive toward achieving peace", he said, according to an Associated Press report of the interview.

Kushner said that the proposal is still in the works, only promising that it will be ready "soon".

Sources close to Abbas have apparently revealed that Saudi Arabia and Jordan are among those which have given the green light to talks with the U.S. administration about the deal, which it is said will end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinian leader, Kushner said, "says that he is committed to peace, and I don't have any reason to disbelieve him". Kushner pointed the finger at Abbas, as the party that is unwilling to take up negotiations.


The U.S. envoys did not have any meetings scheduled with the Palestinians, who suspended ties with Trump in December over his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The status of East Jerusalem, which Palestinians want as the capital of a sovereign Palestinian state, has been at the center of the decades-long struggle for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

"IAF aircraft targeted a wagon used by members of the Hamas terror organization to prepare arson and explosive balloons in the northern Gaza Strip with the intention of launching them into Israeli territory", the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement. Israeli-Palestinian negotiations stalled in 2014 over disputes that have deepened with bloodshed in Gaza and the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

That coincides with the language of the worldwide consensus and global law, which hold that East Jerusalem and the West Bank are Israeli-occupied territory.

Kushner and Greenblatt reportedly lobbied the gulf potentates to invest up to a billion dollars in energy and infrastructure projects for Gaza, which is ruled by the militant Islamist group Hamas and suffers from a lack of potable water and electricity.


Media sources in Gaza said the soldiers shot four Palestinians, including two with live fire, in Abu Safiyya area, east of Jabalia, in northern Gaza, before they were rushed to the Indonesian Hospital in nearby Beit Lahia, suffering moderate wounds.
