A senior Palestinian official sharply condemned Israel for holding the weekly cabinet meeting in the Kosel Tunnels.

The Cabinet met Sunday in tunnels for a special session marking the 50th anniversary of Israel’s capture of the Kosel from Jordanian hands in the Six Day War.

Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat called the meeting a “provocation” that sent a “clear message to the Palestinian people.”

He adds that the meeting, held in “occupied East Jerusalem,” sends “a clear message to the Palestinian people that the systematic violations of their inalienable rights are going to continue.”
