Gantz tells Joint List chiefs he wants government serving both Jews and Arabs

Blue and White party chief Benny Gantz speaks with representatives of the Arab Joint List amid his efforts to form a government.

Gantz tells Ayman Odeh, Ahmad Tibi and Mansour Abbas he seeks to form a government that will serve all Israeli citizens, Jewish and Arab, and prevent a fourth election.

The Balad party, seen as the extreme wing of the Joint List, was not part of the conversation.
