Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett yesterday said that he sees no reason to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, describing the establishment of a Palestinian state a "terrible mistake".
“There is no diplomatic process with the Palestinians, nor will there be one,” said a source close to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett last week after his defence minister, Benny Gantz, met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
The Palestinian prisoners’ movement announced that 1380 prisoners in Israeli jails will launch an open-ended hunger strike starting Friday, said the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission in a statement.
