MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi (Meretz) claimed Thursday that Foreign Minister Yair Lapid had promised to allow the return of the residents of two Arab villages in the Galilee who fled during Israel's War of Independence in 1948. In an interview with Nas Radio, Zoabi "Lapid promised me a historic achievement - to bring back the residents of the two Palestinian Arab villages in the Galilee 'Iqrit' and 'Baram' who were deported in 1948. We started working, but it was stopped."

Minister Lapid wrote in response on his Twitter account: "It never happened and was never planned. This is a hallucination." Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu (Likud) tweeted in response: "The legacy of the Bennett government - the right of return. "The government of Lapid and Bennett are working with MK Zoabi, Abbas, Tibi and anti-Zionist forces to restore the right of return - we must overthrow this weak government and return the country to our leadership."
