1. Palestinian-Israeli negotiators to meet

Palestinian and Israeli chief negotiators will meet for the first time in more than a year in Jordan on Tuesday.

Negotiations have stalled because of Israeli settlement construction in occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem

Palestinian and Israeli negotiators will meet for the first time in more than a year in Jordan on Tuesday to discuss stalled peace talks, the Jordanian foreign ministry said on Sunday.

"Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Tuesday will host a meeting including the Quartet as well as Israeli and Palestinian officials," ministry spokesman Mohammad Kayed said.

"The minister will also host a separate meeting between Israeli and Palestinian officials."

Kayed said the meeting would be "a serious effort to find a common ground to resume direct talks" between the Palestinians and Israel.

Envoys of the quartet of Middle East mediators - the US, European Union, UN and Russia, are scheduled to attend, as are chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, on behalf of the Palestinians, and Yitzhak Molcho,a top aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on behalf of the Israelis.

'Not a negotiating session'

It is to be the first official Israeli-Palestinian parley since negotiations broke off in September 2010, said a spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Negotiations Affairs Department, Xavier Abu Eid.

2. Israel announces contentious Jerusalem construction ahead of peace talks meet

Housing Ministry publishes tender for 300 housing units beyond the Green Line hours before Jordan-mediated session between Netanyahu envoy, PA negotiator.

<snip>

"The Housing Ministry and Israel Lands Administration published on Tuesday three new tenders for construction of 300 housing units beyond the Green Line in Jerusalem, just hours before Israeli and Palestinian envoys are due to meet for the first time in over a year to discuss the renewal of peace talks."

<snip>

"Responding to the newly released tenders, the left-leaning NGO Ir Amim said that the announcement of new housing units is meant to send a message ahead of the upcoming Erekat-Molcho meeting.

"By releasing the tender at this time, Israel is slapping the face of (Jordan's) King Abdullah and the entire international community, morbidly injuring the already low chances of peace talks to be renewed," an Ir Amim statement said."

3. Hamas calls on Palestinian Authority to boycott peace talks with Israel

 

Hamas called on the Palestinian Authority Monday to boycott peace talks with Israel, saying such negotiations have not succeeded in the past.

The call came a day before Israeli and Palestinian negotiators are to meet in Amman, Jordan, in the first public face-to-face parley between the sides in 15 months, in an effort to get peace talks going again.

"These meetings are a repetition of a track that had failed over the past years," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in a statement emailed to journalists.
