Abbas: Palestine Officials Freezing Contacts With Israel at All Levels

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday said that he and his government’s officials will freeze contacts with Israel at all levels. The move comes in response to the Israeli government installing metal detectors at Temple Mount, an East Jerusalem site holy to both Jews and Muslims. They installed the detectors last week after three Arab-Israeli men opened fire outside the site, killing two police officers.
