A parliamentary ethics panel ruled on Sunday that Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked acted within the bounds of her duties by meeting with the family of one of the Jewish extremists charged in the murder of three Palestinians from the village of Duma.

“There was no improper behavior by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked,” a Knesset ethics committee said on Sunday, striking down a motion by Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg.

The leftist lawmaker filed the motion, arguing that Shaked’s meeting signaled encouragement to far-right wing operatives in the West Bank to continue attacks against Palestinians.
