A Palestinian mayor was forced to resign Saturday after facing public criticism for participating in a conference with Israeli officials in Tel Aviv.
Hamdallah Hamdallah, mayor of the West Bank town of Anabta, was one of some 20 Palestinian Authority officials to attend Friday’s gathering to express support for the two-state solution and opposition to the peace plan unveiled last month by US President Donald Trump’s administration.
The Israeli officials at the conference, titled “yes to peace, no to annexation,” were mainly left-wing ex-politicians and Arab Israeli public figures.
Following reports in Israeli media about the conference, many Palestinians opposed to “normalization” with the Jewish state protested against Hamdallah on social media.
