Fatah Central Committee Member Nabil Shaath said that despite his belief that the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations have failed, the Palestinian Authority (PA) would remain in the talks for the purpose of Israel releasing its terrorist prisoners.

“We have committed to negotiations for a period of nine months, and by then we hope to see all 104 of our prisoners released,” Shaath, a close adviser to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, toldMaariv.

Israel has so far released half of the 104 Palestinian terrorist prisoners it said it would free as part of the negotiations.
