Lapid Meets With PA Civil Affairs Minister to Discuss ‘Political, Bilateral Issues’

(Israel Hayom) Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Palestinian Authority Civil Affairs Minister Hussein al-Sheikh met on Sunday evening, according to the PA official.

The two discussed “political and bilateral issues,” al-Sheikh tweeted. “I highlighted the need for a political horizon between the two parties based on #international legitimacy.”

Prior to his post about the meeting with Lapid, al-Sheikh said that on Monday a list would be published containing the names of 500 additional undocumented families residing in the West Bank to receive Palestinian I.D. cards. The list was to be published following understandings reached between Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz and PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, said al-Sheikh, who is considered a member of Abbas’ inner circle.

Lapid’s office confirmed the meeting, saying it had been coordinated with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, as well as with Gantz.
