    Israel has suspended peace talks with the Palestinians following the announcement of a unity deal between Fatah and Hamas.

    The decision came after a meeting of Israel’s security cabinet.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas of not wanting peace.

    It now seems to be the end of a nine-month initiative set in motion by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

    Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said the Fatah-Hamas deal makes a peace agreement “impossible.”
