Prime Minister Bennett meets with Ra’am party leader Mansour Abbas for the first time since Ra’am froze its participation in the coalition.

Bennett called a meeting with Abbas to calm the waters, as the Islamist party is reportedly planning to end its boycott of the coalition.

Senior sources in Ra’am tell Channel 12 that they believe the coalition is on its last legs, however.

Ra’am froze its government participation last month as it come under pressure amid tensions surrounding the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The Hamas terror party lashed Ra’am and Abbas yesterday for joining the government.

Security officials are considering stepping up protection for Abbas following the threats from Hamas’s Gaza leader Yahya Sinwar.
