The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) Monday reiterated that the Palestinians insist to carry on "popular resistance" to obstruct the Israeli measures.

The cabinet, which held its weekly meeting headed by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad in Ramallah, said in a statement sent to reporters that the "popular struggle would help build up the institutions" of a future independent Palestinian statehood.

The cabinet as well as Fatah movement of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas decided to intensify the popular protests against the Israeli measures, mainly Jewish settlements construction and security roadblocks.

"The Palestinian people are heading towards achieving their goals of freedom, return and independence and establishing a Palestinian state on the border of 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital," said the PNA cabinet.

The Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations have been stalled in December 2008 after Israel staged a major military offensive on Gaza and continued settlements construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The Palestinians said no talks before halting settlement.

The PNA cabinet also condemned the Israeli threats to carry out another war on the Gaza Strip. Israeli leaders had earlier this week threatened to strike on the enclave following an increase of rocket attacks from Gaza.
