‘Abbas stabbed Palestinians in the back by meeting with Gantz’
Palestinian factions were outraged by an overnight meeting between Defense Minister Benny Gantz and PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestinian factions on Monday condemned the meeting between Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as a “dangerous development” and a “stab in the back” to the Palestinians. Abbas and Gantz discussed Palestinian-Israeli relations “in all its aspects,” said Hussein al-Sheikh, head of the PA General Authority of Civil Affairs, who attended the Sunday-night meeting in Ramallah.

PA officials refused to provide further details about the meeting, which was also attended by Majed Faraj, head of the PA General Intelligence Service. Several Palestinian factions, most of which do not recognize Israel’s right to exit and are opposed to any peace process between the Palestinians and Israelis, condemned the meeting with Gantz, dubbing him “the Zionist minister of war” and the “Zionist minister of the army.” Hamas officials described the meeting as “dangerous” and said it “reflects the Palestinian Authority’s contempt for Palestinian blood.”
