Egypt offers to host direct Netanyahu-Abbas talks — reports

As part of Cairo’s efforts to revive the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has reportedly offered to host direct talks between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The tripartite summit, which would also be attended by senior Egyptian and Jordanian officials, would seek confidence-building measures in an effort to calm the 10-month surge in violence in the West Bank, Palestinian officials tell the Arabic language Al-Hayat newspaper as well as Israel’s Haaretz daily.
