On the evening of Sunday, January 23, the home of Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid witnessed a meeting with him and Palestinian Civil Affairs Minister Hussein Al-Sheikh, which came, according to Israeli media, under the coordination of Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

Official statements about the meeting, the latest in a series of recent meetings between Palestinian and Israeli officials, were scant. However, a tweet by Palestinian Minister Hussein al-Sheikh revealed that the meeting “discussed political and bilateral issues,” and stressed “the need to find a political horizon based on international legitimacy.”
