A meeting between Meretz chief Nitzan Horowitz and the party rebel Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi has been pushed off until tomorrow, according to Hebrew media reports, after he was already on the way to her home.

The Haaretz daily says Horowitz and fellow Meretz Minister Esawi Frej turned around after learning that Rinawie Zoabi was headed to give an interview with Channel 12 news.

Both the newspaper and the Kan public broadcaster quote sources saying Zoabi has indicated that despite her resignation from the coalition, she does not intend to bring down the now minority government.
