Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to appoint a woman to the negotiation team for the upcoming talks with the Palestinians, Israel Radio reported on Monday.

Following criticism of the government for failing to appoint a single woman to the Turkel Committee, which is investigating the IDF's raid on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara aid ship, Netanyahu has now bowed to pressure and agreed to pick a woman to the team which will conduct the negotiations.
