The Israeli government expressed support for U.S. actions in the middle East, including measures to deter Iran and, in particular, the operation against Soleimani. Netanyahu said that the Palestinian refugee problem must be solved outside Israel.

Closest to the resolution of the conflict, Palestinians and Israelis came almost 30 years ago, in 1993, secret negotiations in Oslo with the participation of Shimon Peres, who was then Minister of foreign Affairs of Israel, and Mahmoud Abbas, the then head of government of the Palestinian authority.

The first agreement was signed in August 1993, and in early September, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the leader of the Palestine liberation Organization (PLO) Yasser Arafat exchanged friendly letters on mutual recognition.

At the same time Israel first recognized the PLO as the legitimate representative of the Palestinians in the negotiations.

In mid-September 1993 on the White house lawn was made a historical photo of the handshake between Rabin and Arafat in the presence of US President bill Clinton.

Soon, however, Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in tel Aviv by the representative of the ultra-right wing Israeli who opposed dialogue with the Palestinian side.
