Israel coalition likely to fall as MKs veto Bennett appointment

Hanegbi and Netanyahu

"He trusts the ministers' sense of responsibility to keep them from making the historic error of bringing down a right-wing government", it said. Ministers and smaller parties are leaving Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition, threatening his future as prime minister.

Mr Netanyahu raised the spectre of the collapse of a Likud-led government in 1992, which led to Labour taking power and signing the Oslo Accords agreement with the Palestinians, to the fury the Israeli Right.

Liberman spent his last official day as Defense Minister was Friday with senior IDF officers and soldiers in the Gaza Division, and at a meeting with civilian security heads from communities in the Gaza Belt region.

Some demonstrators burned posters of Avigdor Lieberman, the Israeli defence minister who resigned this week in protest over the ceasefire, which he called a "surrender to Hamas".(ANSAmed). If Bennett's eight MPs also leave the coalition, Netanyahu will lose the majority.

Tourism Minister Yariv Levin echoed Hanegbi's analysis, explaining that: "All the coalition partners will have to make a decision early this week if they want to move ahead of the elections", Arutz Sheva reported.

In a statement released after the meeting, Kahlon said, "The stability required at this time is not achievable in the present situation, and therefore the responsible act is the establishment of a new, strong and stable government".

The criminal investigations have barely damaged the Prime Minister's standing in the polls or his popularity.

However, a survey conducted by Hadashot TV on Wednesday night revealed that Netanyahu's Likud party would win by a landslide if elections were to be held now.

Government figures would agree on a date on Sunday, the source added.

Prior to the Israeli commando raid that went awry, Israel allowed Qatar to deliver $15 million as a first installment to help Hamas pay civil servants long overdue salaries.
