Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas speaks to Public Security Minister Omer Barlev. Barlev extends his best wishes to Abbas for the Eid al-Adha holiday.
Since the new Israeli government was sworn in last month, Abbas has held an unprecedented number of conversations with Israeli officials.
On Monday, Defense Minister Benny Gantz spoke with Abbas and “discussed the need to advance confidence-building measures between Israel and the Palestinian Authority,” said the Defense Ministry.
Abbas has also spoken twice with new President Isaac Herzog over the past two weeks.
