Abbas Visits Gantz in Israel
By Micah Halpern

Sunday January 2, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz hosted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas yesterday.

The meeting took place at Gantzí home in Rosh Haayin.

This is the first time since 2010 that Abbas was in Israel - with the sole exception of Shimon Peresí funeral in 2016.

The meeting lasted for two and a half hours. Also present were Israeli Major General Rassan Aliyan, Palestinian Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein a Sheik and Palestinian Chief of Intelligence Majed Faraj.

Following the meeting Defense Minister Gantzís office released this statement:
"The two discussed various security and civilian issues Ö The defense minister emphasized the shared interest in strengthening security coordination and maintaining stability, and preventing terrorism and violence."

The statement also revealed that Gantz told Abbas that he intends to "further promote bond-building steps in the economic and civilian spheres, as the two agreed on during their last meeting."

This was the second meeting between Benny Gantz and Mahmoud Abbas. Their first took place in August in Ramallah.
