(Nikki Guttman and Israel Hayom Staff/Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS) More than 70 foreign diplomats visited Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip this week, taking part in a tour organized by Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud). The purpose of the tour was to show the diplomats, who are stationed in Israel, the security reality along Israel’s southern border.

Hotovely told the diplomats that the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza “is due to the internal Palestinian crisis; Israel is not responsible for it.”

Discussing possible formulas for a peace agreement with the Palestinians, Hotovely said, “The two-state solution is no longer relevant.”
