New Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar met last week with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, according to Hebrew media reports.

The two reportedly discussed security coordination in the West Bank and efforts to reach a long-term ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza-ruling Hamas terror group.

It was the first time the two have met.

There is no confirmation of the meeting from the Shin Bet.

On Sunday, Bar reportedly visited Egypt for talks with his Egyptian counterpart that also addressed Gaza.
