The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas has rejected a revised peace initiative by the Arab League.

First proposed in 2002, the Arab League’s peace initiative calls for Israel to completely withdraw to the pre-1967 lines, which includes Gaza, the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, as well as a “just” solution to the Palestinian refugee situation, in exchange for normalized relations with the Arab world.

The proposal, which was reportedly modified during a recent meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Arab League leaders, includes the possibility of “land swaps” between Israel and the Palestinians.

“The so-called new Arab initiative is rejected by our people, by our nation and no one can accept it,” said Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of Hamas, Al-Jazeera reported.
