Gantz meets Ra’am’s Abbas in bid to pull him away from Netanyahu

Blue and White head Benny Gantz has met with his counterpart from the Ra’am party Mansour Abbas in a bid to convince the Islamist faction not to back Likud’s Benjamin Netanyahu for prime minister, according to Hebrew media reports.

“Gantz asked that Abbas support a candidate who will stabilize the change bloc for forming a government,” Walla quotes a Blue and White source saying.

On Twitter, Gantz writes a warning to both Abbas and Yamina’s Naftali Bennett that Netanyahu will use them.
