    Saeb Erakat has submitted his resignation as the chief Palestinian negotiator, according to Mohammed Shtayeh, Palestinian negotiator and a Fatah Central Committee member.

    Erakat had previously said that he would resign his post if an investigation into the leak of Palestinian negotiating documents aired by the Al-Jazeera television network proved that the source of papers came from his office.

    The so-called Palestine Papers suggested that Palestinian negotiators offered to give up large swaths of East Jerusalem to Israel during talks dating back to 2008 and that they had been willing to offer much larger concessions in private than they were publicly acknowledging.

    This is the big blow over Palestinian authority, huyu jamaa ni expert sana kwa mambo ya wapalestina na amekuwa kwenye position tangu enzi za hayati Yasser Arafat, ni makini mno over Palestinian internal/foreign affairs. na ameplay the great role katika kuleta mapatano ya amani na Israel.
    Its a blow kwa wapalestina.
