RAMALLAH, West Bank — A senior Palestinian official says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's parameters for a peace deal are a "declaration of war" on the Palestinians.

In Tuesday's speech to the U.S. Congress, Netanyahu said Israel wants to keep key parts of the territories it captured in the 1967 Mideast war, including all of east Jerusalem and parts of the West Bank. The Palestinians want to establish their state in the occupied lands, but are ready for minor lands swaps.

Nabil Shaath, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, says Netanyahu "offered a solution based on ignoring the 1967 borders."

Abbas is convening leaders of the PLO and his Fatah movement on Wednesday to decide on the next move.
