Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas makes his first public comments on the current round of violence, saying that his Islamist party does not influence security decisions made by the government.

“We are opposed to any war in which there are innocent victims, but we have no influence on military operations,” Abbas tells Channel 12 news.

“We are in the Knesset to work for Arab society, and not to influence the foreign and security policy of the State of Israel,” he says.
