Former US envoy says war on Gaza ends two-state solution hopes

Former US Special Envoy to the Middle East Martin Indyk said the recent war waged by Israel on the Gaza Strip "may have put a new nail in the coffin of the two state solution" warning of the negative path of relations between the United States and Israel, Israel's Channel 10 reported.

Indyk said the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip dubbed "Operation Protective Edge" damaged relations between the United States and Israel to a great extent and reinforced tensions between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama.

He pointed out that "in spite of the solid foundation in the relations between the two countries, the situation could change following the Israeli operation against the Gaza Strip."

Indyk warned of poll results which reveal a decline in the support among young people and democrats for Israel, saying that if the situation continues at this pace, Israel "will find itself in a new situation other than the one it is used to". more
