Abbas calls Deri to express condolences for Ovadia Yosef's passing, two months later

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas called Shas leader Arye Deri Tuesday night to express condolences on the October 7 death of the party's mentor, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
Deri told Abbas that the people of Israel desire peace but the Palestinians needed to prove that they were interested in a peace that would be genuine.
Yosef expressed harsh criticism of the Palestinians on multiple occasions, calling them snakes and their Muslim faith stupid.
