Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett yesterday denied that his government is or will carry out negotiations for the creation of a "terrorist state" in Israel, in reference to a Palestinian state.

This came during a Knesset meeting which saw former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attacking Bennett, saying his government was negotiating the creation of a Palestinian state.

Netanyahu was referred to meetings held between Israeli and Palestinian officials, including one between Defence Minister Benny Gantz and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"I was asked to respond to political negotiations for the establishment of a terrorist state in the heart of the country," Bennett said, according to Israel National News. "Here is my answer: There are no political negotiations for the establishment of a terrorist state in the heart of the country."
