Asked if the USA delegation demanded an end to the payments of the families of Palestinian terrorists and their families, Aloul answered, "Not only this, President Trump has interfered in much smaller issues like what's published on certain sites".

Kushner, special representative for worldwide negotiations Jason Greenblatt and deputy national security advisor Dina Powell held talks with the PA president in Ramallah on Thursday after meeting with a number of Middle East leaders in the past several days.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will hold talks in Ankara on August 28 amid calls for the resumption of negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis to end the conflict.

"We know that this issue is hard and complex, but nothing is impossible in the face of good efforts", Abbas said during the parley with Kushner, according to official PA news outlet Wafa.

Netanyahu said such a deal was "within our reach" and promised to work with the Trump administration "to advance peace, stability and security in our region".

Palestinian security chief Majid Faraj told Al-Monitor that Abbas was facing pressure at home to move forward on peace efforts.

"We affirm that this [US] delegation is working toward peace, and we are working with it to achieve soon what Trump called the 'peace deal, '" he added.

"Without a vision it will be negotiations for negotiations sake", Khatib said.

Part of Kushner's trip was meant to reach out to key nations that he sees as part of the process of bringing peace between Israel and Palestine.

Both sides and the mainstream media tried to give a positive spin, but there's every indication that last week's meeting between USA special envoy Jared Kushner and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas was just as stormy as the first time the two men got together back in June.

Should Kushner and his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, fail to strong-arm the Israelis back in line, the Palestinians said they would "turn to an alternative plan on which they have been working for the past two years".

"I have met with Trump envoys about 20 times since the beginning of his term as president of the United States", Abbas said in a meeting with the left-wing Meretz Party in Israel, according to a report in Haaretz. "We really appreciate the commitment of the prime minister and his team to engaging very thoughtfully and and respectfully in the way that the president has asked him to do so".
