German Chancellor Angela Merkel has arrived in Israel for talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, despite differences between them on a range of issues.
Merkel's government has been among EU nations that have repeatedly criticised Israel over its settlement building in the occupied West Bank.
Germany has also recently joined calls against Israel's planned destruction of a Bedouin village in the West Bank.
Ahead of Merkel's arrival, Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev warned the chancellor not to take up the issue of Khan al-Ahmar village.
