Abbas refuses to meet visiting Egypt intel chief — report

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas refused to meet with visiting Egypt intelligence chief Abbas Kamel, Israel’s channel 10 TV reports.

Kamal was in Tel Aviv last night where he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, and Shin Bet Chief Nadav Argaman to discuss an emerging ceasefire with Hamas in Gaza.

He was then supposed to travel to Ramallah to met with Abbas, but Abbas reportedly told Kamel he was busy, a move Channel 10 described as a “humiliation” for Kamel.
