Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked met with the families of the minors arrested for alleged involvement in the October murder of Palestinian woman Aysha Ravi, according to a report Monday evening by "Honenu," a legal aid organization.

Meretz Chairman MK Tamar Zandberg condemned the meeting, saying that "Hayemin Hehadash [the New Right Party] has different standards for Jews and Arabs."

"The justice minister continues to fertilize the poisonous beds of the settlers," she continued. "She is making an electoral calculation and running into the arms of families accused of terrorism."

"If an MK had done the same with Palestinian parents, he would have already found himself in the cellars of the Shin Bet," Zandberg said.

This comes after Zandberg tweeted Sunday morning that she "opposes the expulsion of [the Jewish terror suspects'] families and demolishing their homes. Their rights must be maintained, including meeting with a lawyer and to be brought to justice."
