Hamas Chief Rejects Arab League Peace Initiative

Hamas political chief Khaled Mashaal on Thursday emphatically rejected the recently repackaged Arab League peace initiative, warning that the plan would cause Palestinians harm.

The longstanding Arab plan was amended Monday to allow for “mutually agreed” land swaps in a future peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, after a meeting between Arab League officials and US Secretary of State John Kerry. The announcement was made by Qatar’s prime minister, Sheik Hamad Bin Jassem Al Thani, in Washington.
