According to the Israeli Public Broadcaster, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov and Qatari envoy Mohammed Al-Emadi met with Abu Rokon in Jerusalem, Israeli Public Broadcaster Kan said.

During the tripartite meeting, which was initiated by Abu Rokon, the three men discussed the situation in Gaza and the latest Israeli escalation which was triggered by the Israeli army killing and then kidnapping the body of a Palestinian man in the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis.

They discussed how to regain stability and return the situation in the coastal enclave, which has been enduring a strict Israeli siege since 2007, to normal.
