The Palestinian Authority Foreign Ministry says right-wing Israeli politicians may exploit “political chaos” in Israel to “escalate [Israeli] aggression,” in Ramallah’s first response to the coalition crisis in Israel.”

“The ruling right-wing parties may utilize this political chaos to bring about what they have hitherto been unable to in terms of settlement projects,” the Foreign Ministry says, warning of an attempt to “definitively close the door on the two-state solution.”
