Leader of Zionist Camp and head of Israeli opposition Isaac Herzog pledged to grant Saudi Arabia a leading role in running Al-Aqsa Mosque and Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem after a peace deal is reached with Palestinians, Felesteen reported yesterday.

Reporting the Israel’s Maariv, the Palestinian news site said that Herzog said that a “special” role in running the Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem should be given to Saudi Arabia due to its position.

Meanwhile, he invited Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to deliver a speech in the Knesset in order to help oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He said that ousting Netanyahu would lead to establishing a Palestinian state because only the head of the Israeli Labour Party would lead Israel to peace, in reference to himself.
