Israeli-Palestinian conflict can explode at any time: France
France’s FM is warning that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can explode “at any moment”
France’s foreign minister is warning that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can explode “at any moment” and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) extremist group can interfere at any time.
Laurent Fabius told a group of reporters Monday that “if and when it explodes, it’s very, very, very problematic for the whole region and for the world.”
He said that “every radical group,” especially in Gaza, can take advantage of the deadlocked peace process, and it would be lamentable if the Islamic State [ISIS] group - “the most radical of the radicals” - used this as a pretext for violence.
Fabius said he discussed the possibility of moving forward with key leaders during a recent visit where he suggested that a new international body with Arab nations be formed to help spur an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
