HEBRON, (AFP) – Some 250 Palestinians protested in the West Bank city of Hebron on Saturday, calling for a halt to peace talks if Israel resumes settlement construction.

The demonstrators chanted, “No peace talks if settlement continues,” and “the settlement freeze must be total,” according to an AFP journalist.

The protest comes amid intensive efforts Saturday to salvage the fledgling peace talks, with a partial Israeli moratorium on construction in the occupied West Bank set to expire Sunday.

The Palestinians have said they will walk out of talks unless the freeze is extended, which Israel has so far refused to do.
