Fatah official says US Vice President Pence "unwelcome in Palestine"

GAZA - A senior Palestinian official in President Mahmoud Abbas's ruling Fatah party said on Thursday that US Vice President Mike Pence, due to visit the region later this month, "is unwelcome in Palestine".

"In the name of Fatah I say that we will not welcome Trump's deputy in the Palestinian Territories.

He asked to meet (Abbas) on the 19th of this month in Bethlehem, such a meeting will not take place," Jibril Rajoub said.

Aides for Abbas were not immediately available for comment.
