Hamas advocated for the Joint Arab list on a Twitter feed Tuesday claiming ties to the organization's armed wing, the Izaddin al-Qassam, urging voters to exercise their democratic rights.

In a series of tweets, the Brigades urged all Palestinians to vote for Aymen Odeh, head of The Joint List, in hopes that the party will garner 20 mandates and bring about an "end to the occupation" and a "majority representation" of Arabs in the Knesset.


"Liberation is close," Al-Qassam tweeted with the 10 p.m. election deadline looming, calling on its supporters and followers in the "occupied land" to flock to voting booths.

Odeh said Monday he would not rule out recommending Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog to form the next government, saying such a decision would only come after serious talks.

“We will for sure sit and listen to Herzog” and make known our position on promoting equality and improving all of Israeli society, he told The Jerusalem Post. “But we cannot join the coalition.”
