Israel's prime minister has criticised Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, saying that he could not say the Holocaust was "terrible" while attempting to seek the "destruction of Jewish people".
Mr Abbas commented earlier calling the Holocaust "the ugliest crime humanity has known in modern history", according to state media agency WAFA. Mr Netanyahu said he would not negotiate with a government that was "backed by Hamas".
