MKs from Joint List, Likud attend mass ‘sulha’ ceremony in violation of lockdown

A mass “sulha” reconciliation ceremony between two feuding families was held today in the northern Arab-Israelli town of Kabul, in violation of lockdown restrictions.

The event was held inside in an enclosed space, in which gatherings are currently limited to five people.

Among those who attended the ceremony were Likud Deputy Minister Fateen Mulla and a number of MKs from the Joint List, including party leader Ayman Odeh.

The Haaretz daily quotes sources saying police knew about the event and want to reduce violence in the town, but that they didn’t approve it being held with dozens in attendance.
