Mansour Abbas, the head of Israel’s Islamist Ra’am political party, departed today for a diplomatic visit to the United arab Emirates, Channel 12 news reports, without citing a source.

Abbas’s office doesn’t immediately respond to a request for comment by The Times of Israel.

Abbas will reportedly meet Emirati Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and others, with the meetings focusing on efforts to stop the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza, efforts to advance a hostage and truce deal, and the state of affairs for Israel’s Arab minority in the shadow of the war.
