Israeli and Palestinian officials reportedly met to “reduce tensions”

PNN/ Jerusalem/
Senior officials from the Israeli Army on Tuesday evening reportedly met with their counterparts from the Palestinian security apparatus in the West Bank, in an attempt to reduce tensions in the area.

Haaretz said that this was the first senior-level meeting since the murder of the Henkin settler couple last Thursday night.

For the past week, four Palestinians, including a 13-year-old, have been killed by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) either during clashes or were just deliberately assassinated.

Four settlers have been killed since last Thursday.

The clashes started last month with Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque, and kept escalating.

Seniors in the Israeli army said described the tensions as “cycles of terror” that come and go and not a general uprising.
