Mahmoud Abbas Meets Israeli Defense Minister

HeadlineDec 29, 2021

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas traveled to central Israel Tuesday for talks with Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz. It was Abbas’s first visit to Israel in more than a decade. It’s not clear what the pair discussed; after the talks, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told reporters there was no peace process underway with the Palestinians, adding, “And there won’t be one.” Abbas has faced protests among Palestinians after he canceled planned legislative and presidential elections earlier this year.
