Defense Minister Ehud Barak phoned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.Tuesday to send well-wishes on the occasion of Id al-Fitr and the end of Ramadan.

Barak's call follows a similar call Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made to Abbas Saturday night, at the onset of the festival that marks the end of Ramadan. With no negotiations currently taking place between Israel and the PA, such calls at the top leadership level are infrequent.
