Meretz chief Nitzan Horowitz issues his first public response to the resignation of the left-wing party’s MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi from the coalition.

“The dissolution of the coalition would be a prize to [Benjamin] Netanyahu and [Itamar] Ben Gvir and [cause] great damage to all of society — Jews and Arabs,” Horowitz, who is health minister, writes on Twitter.

He also pledges Meretz’s commitment to shoring up the government, which now holds a minority of seats in the Knesset.

“The disputes within the government will be resolved internally,” Horowitz says.
