Democratic Camp members meet with Abbas in Ramallah

Two members of the left-wing Democratic Camp electoral alliance met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas today in Ramallah.

According to Channel 13 news, MK Issawi Freij and Noa Rothman say they met with Abbas to bring attention to the Israeli-Palestinian ahead of general elections in September.

The network quotes Abbas saying Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to meet with him multiple times and that he hopes the next government will agree to speak with him.

Rothman, the granddaughter of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, says after the meeting she was “angry and disappointed” Netanyahu hasn’t done more to advance the peace process.

“It is Netanyahu, who through his lack of action and ignoring of the Palestinian problem, who is proving again and again that he himself is not a partner for creating peace for the coming generations,” she tweets.
