Report: Israel ‘handled’ French PM’s phone during Jerusalem visit

When French Prime Minister Manuel Valls arrived in Israel in May he came to promote bilateral ties, which were at the time tense in light of Israel’s objection to Paris’s initiative to hold a conference on the Middle East peace process.

While the visit was planned before the June 3 date that was set for the launch of the French initiative, Valls came to promote his country’s plan.

The visit included tours of "sensitive" areas and entrance to the Prime Minister’s Office, where cell phones are prohibited during meetings.
