Meretz MKs and party members verbally clashed with right wing activists in Hebron on Sunday.

Right-wing activists Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir confronted the Mertetz delegation, which was in Hebron and Kiryat Arba as part of a tour organized by NGO, Breaking the Silence.

Meretz chair Zehava Gal-On called on the Education Ministry to allow pupils to tour Hebron with Breaking the Silence in order to learn the Palestinian perspective, rather than just the settler perspective.

Breaking the Silence is an organization of former IDF soldiers that seeks to show the Israeli public the reality of Israeli military presence in the Palestinian territories.
