    GAZA, (PIC)-- De facto Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu are still quiet and refuse to issue any statements about the departure of their Arab ally Hosni Mubarak from power.

    Abbas's authority, which had launched a scathing attack on Egyptian protestors in the past few days, preferred to keep silent and not to make remarks on Mubarak's ouster.

    The Fatah-controlled Wafa news agency only published a brief report on the resignation of Mubarak without official comments.

    Israel officially announced the closure of its embassy in Cairo until further notice. Israel is now deeply worried that Mubarak's ouster could lead to the emergence of an Egyptian government less friendly to it.
