Israel says not to release jailed Fatah leader

Israel cannot release a top Palestinian Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti because it is not sure such a move would help bolster Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli security minister Avi Dichter said Wednesday.

Barghouti who is serving multiple life sentences in Israeli jail could not be released "as part of an experiment where we will say 'maybe it will help and maybe it won't,'" Dichter said in an interview with Israeli state radio.
