Regional Cooperation Minister Esawi Frej joins criticism of fellow Meretz lawmaker Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi for helping defeat a coalition bill to renew the so-called settler law, appearing to suggest she should resign.

“She made a mistake. In her place, I would resign if I were against a certain vote in principle,” he tells the Kan public broadcaster’s Arabic-language station.
