16:24, Sunday, 10 December, 2023
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left the cabinet meeting Sunday for a 50-minute telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. This is the first conversation between Netanyahu and Putin since the conversation they had on October 17, in which the prime minister told the Russian president that Israel "will not stop until it destroys the military and governmental capabilities of Hamas." There is great tension in Jerusalem-Moscow relations.
