No proof of Israel involvement in Arafat's death: Abbas
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday said that he did not have proof of Israel's involvement in the assassination of his predecessor Yasser Arafat, Anadolu Agency reported.
Abbas also ruled out the possibility that that the Palestinians would stage a third uprising.
"I cannot accuse anybody of killing president Arafat without evidence," Abbas said. "I do not have evidence that Israel had killed him and this is why I do not accuse it," he added in an interview with Israel's Channel 10.
Some Palestinian factions, including Abbas' Fatah, had accused Israel of fatally poisoning the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat inside his home in Ramallah in 2004.
