Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi criticizes the decision of the government cabinet to hold a meeting earlier today on the Golan Heights.

“It doesn’t matter how many cabinet meetings are held on the Golan, it is occupied Syrian territory,” tweets Tibi.

“All elements of the coalition are responsible for the decisions made during this cabinet meetings,” adds Tibi, “as well as for the deepening of the settlements and the violence of settlers.”

The Ra’am party, which is a member of the coalition but has no ministers, did not take part in the meeting.

Left-wing Meretz ministers Tamar Zandberg and Nitzan Horowitz did attend the meeting, though Zandberg says the decision was “complicated. We support peace and hope one day it will happen.”

Regional Cooperation Minister Esawi Frej chose not to attend the cabinet meeting.
