Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not hold talks with visiting German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Tuesday because of Gabriel’s intention to meet with an Israeli NGO critical of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, Netanyahu’s spokesman said.

“The meeting is cancelled,” said the spokesman, David Keyes.
