    Al-Ahram, Israel threatens to 'lock up' Palestinian president in West Bank

    Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Thursday that Tal Aviv could punish the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas by “imprisoning” him in the West Bank after he signed a reconciliation agreement with the Hamas movement.

    Liberman threatened the his government will prevent Abbas and his prime minister, Salam Fayyad, from moving freely by canceling the “VIP visas” that Israeli confers upon Palestinian officials.  

    “We have at our disposal a vast arsenal of measures including the lifting of VIP status for Abu Mazen [Abbas] and Salam Fayyad, which will not allow them to move freely,” Lieberman said.

    "One of the clauses of the agreement is the release of hundreds of Hamas prisoners from Palestinian jails, which would flood the West Bank with armed terrorists, and the IDF must prepare accordingly," Lieberman said.
