Gazan terrorists fired rockets at Israel on Friday night and Saturday night, causing no injuries or damage. Several arracks occurred earlier in the week as well.

Bennett expressed his disappointment at “the absence of condemnation by the UN for the firing of rockets at Israel.”

Regarding the Muslim riots on the Temple Mount and the tensions in Jerusalem, Bennett said that “the international community must not serve the agenda of the terrorist organizations. Israel is the stabilizing force; if we did not uphold order, tens of thousands of Muslims would not be able to pray. These are people [rioters] who prepared rocks and Molotov cocktails in advance for use from inside the mosque.”

They also discussed Guterres expected trip to see Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and “the efforts to resolve the situation between Russia and Ukraine,” Bennett’s office stated.

Guterres’ office stated that they discussed “the situation in Jerusalem, particularly the tensions around the Holy Sites, and efforts to de-escalate current tensions, end provocations and unilateral steps, and restore calm.”

Guterres “reiterated that the status quo at the Holy Sites must be upheld and respected,” and “reaffirmed his commitment to the achievement of the two-State solution based on relevant United Nations resolutions, international law, and prior agreements.”
