An American diplomatic delegation reportedly informed Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas last week that a freeze of Israeli construction in the disputed territories would topple Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.

Palestinian officials stated that the delegation — led by President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner — made the comments during a meeting with Abbas in Ramallah, indicating that the Palestinian demand for an Israeli construction freeze as a precondition for resuming direct peace negotiations is off the table, reported the London-based Arabic daily newspaper Al-Hayat.
