Balad Spokesman Won't Confirm MKs Met with Bishara

A spokesman for the Arab Balad party confirmed on Sunday night that its Knesset Members visited Qatar, but would not confirm they met with Azmi Bishara, the former MK who fled to Qatar after passing information to Hezbollah in the 2006 Second Lebanon War, helping direct their missiles at Israeli citizens.

According to the spokesman, who was quoted on Kol Yisrael radio, Hanin Zoabi, Jamal Zahalka and Basal Ghattas indeed travelled to Qatar over the past few days.

The spokesman added, however, that he was unaware of any meeting between the three and Bishara.
