UN chief to push Palestinians to calm spiralling unrest

Palestinian protesters pull a rubbish bin as they clash with Israeli security forces in the West Bank town of Al-Bireh, on the northern outskirts of Ramallah, on October 20, 2015UN chief Ban Ki-moon meets Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Wednesday after talks with Israeli leaders, warning both sides to back away from a “dangerous escalation” in violence threatening a full-scale uprising. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed little room for compromise when meeting the UN secretary general late Tuesday, harshly criticising Abbas for “fanning the flames” of violence and rejecting allegations that Israel has used excessive force. As he stood next to Ban, however, Netanyahu argued sternly against suggestions that Israel’s continued occupation, long-stalled peace efforts and Jewish settlement building had led to the current unrest.
