A number of mayors of Arab towns have issued statements defending Ra’am chairman Mansour Abbas after Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar lambasted the Islamist party leader as a traitor for joining Israel’s governing coalition.

“Mansour Abbas is not a traitor. He represents a large group in our (Arab) sector. Arab community leaders in the country must condemn without exception and reject Sinwar’s words,” says Tira Mayor Maamun Abd Elhai.

Similar statements have also been issued by the mayors of Kafr Qasim and Rahat.
