Before his meeting with Obama, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with Jewish leaders Monday to condemn the deaths of two Israeli soldiers last weekend. Abbas also called on Israel to condemn the killing of 4 Palestinians by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF), who died over the past few weeks, Israel Radio reported.
The comments came in response to complaints made by Israel to the US claiming that the Palestinian Authority had failed to cease violence against Israel and Israelis. This complaint was provoked by the death of two Israeli soldiers over the weekend.Abbas condemned all acts of violence, adding that he expects Israel to similarly condemn the killing of four Palestinians by Israeli forces in recent weeks.
