Jerusalem, Jan 24 (Agencies): Palestinians were ready to negotiate over issues of Jerusalem and refugees during peace talks in 2008, according to a report by the Al-Jazeera TV channel on Sunday that quoted from documents it said came from the talks.

Palestinian negotiators quickly denied the report saying parts of the documents were fabricated. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he kept Arab countries fully briefed on the negotiations with Israel.

Al-Jazeera said the Palestinians offered to let Israel keep all but one of the Jewish enclaves it build in east Jerusalem after capturing it in the 1967 Mideast war. About 200,000 Israelis live there now.

In return, according to the quoted documents, the Palestinians wanted Israeli land, including a section close to the West Bank-Israel line where many of Israel's minority Arab citizens live.

They also proposed international control of the key Jerusalem holy site as a temporary measure. The Palestinians, Israel, the US, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan would administer the site where the Al Aqsa Mosque compound sits atop the ruins of the biblical Jewish temples, until Israel and the Palestinians could work out a permanent arrangement.

On the issue of refugees, the documents said the Palestinians agreed that Israel would take in 10,000 refugees a year for 10 years—a total of 100,000.

The Palestinians have insisted that all refugees from the 1948-49 war and their descendants —several million people—have the right to return to Israel. The Israelis have always rejected that as a threat to the Jewish character of their state.

The chief Palestinian negotiator in the 2008 talks, Ahmed Qureia, said that "many parts of the documents were fabricated, as part of the incitement against the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian leadership”.

He denied making an offer about the Jewish enclaves in east Jerusalem, claiming that Israel refused to discuss the issue.

The current chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, dismissed the TV report as "lies and half truths."

Abbas told Egyptian newspaper editors in Cairo that he kept the Arab League updated on all details of the negotiations with Israel, according to the Palestinian news agency Wafa.

"I don't know from where Al-Jazeera came with secret things," Abbas was quoted as saying.

"There is nothing we hide from our brothers, the Arabs."
