JERUSALEM – The latest developments in a wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence (all times local).
Israel's prime minister is headed to Germany for a high-profile mission aimed at restoring calm after weeks of Israeli-Palestinian unrest.
Netanyahu will meet with Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel, on Wednesday before holding talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday. Kerry then heads to the region for talks with the Palestinians and Jordan.
Netanyahu said his talks with Kerry will focus on ways to "calm the situation."
He said he would ask the U.S. to press Abbas to stop what he called "incitement" that has fueled the violence.
Over the past month, 10 Israelis have been killed in a wave of Palestinian attacks, mostly stabbings, while 46 Palestinians — including 25 identified by Israel as attackers — have been killed. The remainder died in clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian demonstrators.
