Abbas aide: Israel escalates violence killing 6 Palestinians

An aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned Israel's killing of six Palestinians on Saturday, saying the Jewish state escalated the violence.

Nabil Abu Rdainah, the aide, told Reuters after the killing of three members of Abbas's own Fatah movement and three Gaza men "this grave Israeli escalation shows Israel is not interested in peace and is trying to explode the situation."

"Israel is torpedoing international and American efforts to restart peace talks," which stalled a year ago, Rdainah said. Israel has insisted it was ready to resume negotiations immediately.
