Worthy Christian News » Israel-Palestinian Conflict » Netanyahu Met Abbas Before Gaza Ceasefire, Report Says


JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– Prime Minister Netanyahu met in secret with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Jordan before the Gaza ceasefire was announced Tuesday, a Jordanian paper reported Thursday.

According to Al Ghad, the two met in Amman, the Jordanian capital, at the invitation of the kingdom. No further details were given and no Israeli official would confirm the report.

Israel's Cabinet was set to convene Thursday evening at 8 pm amid growing criticism from within the coalition at the Gaza ceasefire, which was passed without a Cabinet vote and has inspired harsh remarks from senior ministers, who said Israel capitulated to Hamas' demands.

Meanwhile, Palestinian leadership will pursue diplomatic efforts at the UN Security Council to end what it describes as "Israel's decades-long occupation," Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported Thursday, citing Nabil Shaath, a senior Fatah official. — Source

    Why does the US support the Israeli "Apartheid", oppressive, cruel state? As soon as they stopped bombing into Gaza they went on the largest land grab ever! Where are the poor people of Gaza to go? What can they do? The everyday Citizen is as helpless as we here in the US are when our leaders want to bomb someone!
