France: Macron did not apologize to Israeli police officers

France made clear on Wednesday night that there was no "apology" by French President Emmanuel Macron after he confronted Israeli police in the Old City of Jerusalem Wednesday.

"There was no presidential apology to the Israeli security forces," said the French presidential palace. This is contrary to an Israeli police statement issued after the incident which said that his team apologized for the incident and the French president shook the hands of the Israeli security forces.
