Channel 12 reports that large gaps remain in the negotiations between Ra’am and other coalition heads aimed at the Islamist party resuming its operations within the ruling bloc.

Ra’am announced a freeze in its coalition membership last month amid tensions in Jerusalem surrounding the Temple Mount.

The party plans to boycott the Wednesday plenum session during which the opposition is expected to submit a vote to disperse the Knesset. It would only be a preliminary reading and would need several more approvals to pass, but it would put in motion the process of bringing down the government.
