Prime Minister Naftali Bennett meets with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at Yad Vashem during the German leader’s lightening visit to Israel.

The Prime Minister’s Office says the two will tour the Holocaust memorial and attend a memorial service.

The two leaders will hold a private meeting and press conference later in the day.

The visit is Scholz’s first to Israel since he assumed the role, and comes against a background of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and talks for a renewed nuclear deal with Iran.
