Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party says Prime Minister Yair Lapid is “advancing dangerous concessions to the Holocaust denier Abu Mazen,” using Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s nickname.

The party is reacting to Meretz leadership candidate Zehava Galon who earlier said Lapid had told her he seeks to move forward with diplomatic negotiations with the Palestinians. Lapid has not yet commented on her claim.

“After years in which Likud took Abu Mazen off the global agenda, Lapid and [Defense Minister Benny] Gantz are bringing him back to center stage,” Likud says.
