The London-based Alhayat Newspaper has revealed that a new diplomatic crisis between France and Israel is ongoing behind the scenes after France proposed an initiative for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
The newspaper noted that a high-ranking French official has directed serious accusations against Israel, adding that a salient diplomatic crisis has begun between the two countries since then.
According to Alhayat the Israeli Embassy in Paris has been spying on French officials and diplomats as well as smuggling weapons into the embassy in violation of diplomatic norms.
