Ra’am MK Walid Taha says that the Islamist party won’t bring down the coalition in case of a military operation in Gaza.

Taha tells Channel 12 news that Ra’am is “disgusted by wars” but suggests that Israeli government policy toward Gaza won’t significantly change if Ra’am were to leave the coalition.

“Let’s assume, God forbid there’s a situation of war with Gaza. Then what? We’ve left the government. The government that comes after will do well with Gaza,” he says.
