This is what Erekat said during a meal to break the Ramadan fast that was held by the PLO Department for Negotiations in honor of the prisoners' families in the presence of consuls, ambassadors, and representatives of various states stationed in Palestine. Erekat added that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu aspires to increase the unrest that prevails in the region so that he will be able to continue creating an apartheid regime and thwarting the establishment of the Palestinian state..."
