Palestinians radio silent on Netanyahu’s visit to Saudi Arabia

The Palestinian Authority keeps mum on the alleged visit of Benjamin Netanyahu to Saudi Arabia, as it does not wish to get on the wrong side of Riyadh.

RAMALLAH, West Bank — The Palestinian Authority (PA) remains silent on what has been leaked about the visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 22, where he met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the presence of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The PA and Fatah officials refuse to comment on the matter. Al-Monitor tried to contact several Fatah leaders, but they declined to speak on the record.
