German Chancellor Angela Merkel is reportedly angry that news of her upcoming visit to Israel was leaked to Israeli media.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, Merkel, who is slated to leave office at the end of this year, agreed to visit Israel and meet with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in August. But her office reportedly requested that the visit be kept under wraps due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the trip, and was unhappy to see it aired in Israeli news reports.
