Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu congratulates Joe Biden, thanks Donald Trump

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has become the latest world leader to congratulate Joe Biden on his win in the U.S. election, as well as thanking Donald Trump for the last four years.

Netanyahu has, perhaps, been Trump's closest international ally, especially after the US president controversially approved the moving of the US consulate from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, angering the Palestinians, who consider the city the capital of any future Palestinian state.

Trump's plan for ending the decades-long conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians - called the 'Abraham Accords' also heavily favoured Israel, but won the backing of a number of Arab states including Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. The Palestinians were not involved in the drawing up of the deal and rejected it once it was unveiled.

Finally, in March 2020 Trump gave his backing to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, which are considered illegal under international law.

Whether a Biden White House reverses or amends any of these measures, it remains to be seen.
