“The US made the right decision regarding the PLO mission in Washington,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, according to Israel’s Channel Two.

“Israel supports the American actions that are intended to make it clear to the Palestinians that the refusal to negotiate and the attempts to attack Israel in international forums will not advance peace.”

The US announced that it would close the mission on Monday, giving the staff several months to vacate. The State Department said in a statement that the move was directly connected to the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to negotiate with Israel or to consider any peace plan put forward by the Trump administration.

“We have permitted the PLO office to conduct operations that support the objective of achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017,” said the statement.

“However, the PLO has not taken steps to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel. To the contrary, PLO leadership has condemned a US peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the US government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise.”

“As such, and reflecting Congressional concerns, the Administration has decided that the PLO office in Washington will close at this point,” the statement added.

Israeli-Arab MK Ahmed Tibi blasted the move, telling Channel Two, “We are talking about [Trump’s] campaign of revenge against the Palestinian people and its leadership after they expressed their absolute refusal to consider his shocking ideas regarding what is called the ‘deal of the century,’ and the cutting off of relations with him after the embassy move.”

The US, said Tibi, has “lost its standing as a mediator in the political process.”

据以色列第二频道报道,以色列总理内塔尼亚胡周二表示:“美国在华盛顿就巴解组织的任务做出了正确的决定。”
“以色列支持美国的行动,旨在向巴勒斯坦人明确表示拒绝谈判以及企图在国际论坛上攻击以色列不会促进和平。”

美国宣布它将于周一完成任务,让工作人员有几个月的时间离职。国务院在一份声明中表示,此举与巴勒斯坦权力机构拒绝与以色列谈判或考虑特朗普政府提出的任何和平计划直接相关。
声明说:“我们已经允许巴解组织办事处开展行动,支持以色列人和巴勒斯坦人自2017年11月放弃之前实现持久,全面和平的目标。”

“但是,巴解组织没有采取措施推动与以色列进行直接和有意义的谈判。相反,巴解组织领导层谴责了他们尚未看到的美国和平计划,并拒绝与美国政府就和平努力及其他方面进行接触。“
“就此而言,并反映出国会的担忧,政府已决定华盛顿的巴解组织办事处将在此时关闭,”声明补充说。

以色列 – 阿拉伯民主党人艾哈迈德·蒂比抨击了这一举动,他告诉第二频道,“我们正在谈论[特朗普]对巴勒斯坦人民及其领导人进行报复的运动,因为他们表示绝对拒绝考虑他对所谓”交易“的令人震惊的想法。本世纪,以及在使馆迁移后与他断绝关系。“
蒂比说,美国“在政治进程中失去了作为调解人的地位”。
