No deal on settlement freeze extension – Israel News, Ynetnews

American officials are saying that efforts to extend the moratorium have failed.

 

Following the failure, American officials said that the US is mulling the possibility of resuming proximity talks between the sides. Meanwhile, Ynet learned that Israeli officials are looking into the possibility of offering another withdrawal to the Palestinians and handing over security powers to the Palestinian Authority.

Two US officials familiar with months of failed efforts to get Israel to reinstate a freeze on some new construction said Tuesday the administration has concluded that is not the best way to restart the stalled talks.

However, the US is expected to announce that efforts aimed at resuming talks between Israel and the Palestinians will continue.
