Palestinian journalists over the weekend criticized Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for meeting with Israeli journalist Avi Issacharoff.

Last week, Abbas received Issacharoff in his office and condemned the recent assault on him by Palestinians near Ramallah.

Issacharoff said he and his photographer were nearly lynched by a Palestinian mob that had been incited by a Palestinian female journalist. The two were rescued by PA security intelligence officers.
