The day after she reversed her decision to defect from the coalition, Meretz MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi nevertheless skips a meeting of her party’s faction in the Knesset.

Meretz closes its party meeting to the press, a rare move for the left-wing faction.

Zoabi announced yesterday that she would return to the coalition following a long meeting with Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and a series of agreements. The head of Meretz, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, was not present at that meeting.
