(NEWS) Fatah Considering 'Stone Intifada' In Jerusalem

"On backdrop of stalemate in peace talks with Israel, Palestinian source says President Abbas' movement discussing option of resuming violent struggle against Israel.

Will the failure of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians spark a new wave of violence in the region? A Fatah source told Ynet on Sunday that following the resumption of settlement construction and the stalemate in the direct negotiations with Israel, many organization activists believe it is time to renew the violent struggle in the form of a 'stone intifada.'

On the backdrop of the explosive political situation, Fatah's leadership has been weighing its alternatives in the past few weeks. According to the source, the movement will consider returning to a struggle in some of Fatah's districts, including Jerusalem."
