Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz has canceled a planned visit to Ramallah today to meet with his Palestinian counterpart, the Ynet news site reports.

Sources told the site that the meeting had been arranged in recent days between Horowitz and Mai al-Kaila, but that the visit was now canceled in the wake of Idit Silman’s resignation from the coalition.

Silman is reportedly eager to join the opposition Likud party and become health minister in any future government the faction could form.

Horowitz and Silman clashed this week on the issue of allowing non-kosher-for-Passover food into hospitals during the upcoming holiday.
