Netanyahu speaks with Abbas for first time since kidnapping
16 June 2014 12:23
Four days since the kidnapping of three Israeli teens in the West Bank, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke with Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas for the first time.
During the telephone conversation, Netanyahu said "Terrorists abducted these innocent children, wheras in our hospitals, we treat sick Palestinian children. That's the difference between our humane government and the murderous terror that attacks us."
Shortly before the discussion, the Palestinian Authority published a statement condemning the kidnappings, but also the IDF's actions in the West Bank search.
