National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir and Israel Police chief Kobi Shabtai meet to discuss the plan to establish a National Guard, their offices say in a joint statement.

According to the statement, the pair have agreed to establish a framework deal for creating such a body.

Ben Gvir circulated a letter last night signed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promising to bring the issue up for approval in the next cabinet meeting on Sunday. The move was widely seen as coming in exchange for Ben Gvir backing down from his threat to quit the coalition if Netanyahu announced a pause on the judicial overhaul legislation.
