Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas returned from his visit to the United States on Thursday and told Fatah supporters that the Palestinian leadership “won’t give in” to American pressure regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

“I have honored my pledge and kept my promise. We … will uphold our principles. You are aware of all the conditions and the pressures, but I repeat: We will not give in,” Abbas pledged before thousands of Fatah supporters attending an official reception held in Ramallah in his honor.

The Palestinian Wafa news agency further quoted Abbas as saying, “We will not give up one inch of land. Not on my watch. I will not let that happen. … Be assured that we will be victorious.”Image
