Prime Minister Naftali Bennett meets with fellow Yamina MK Abir Kara, as he continues to work to keep the faction whole, during a coalition crisis.

Last week, Yamina MK Idit Silman announced her surprise exit from the coalition, leaving the government without a majority in the Knesset and teetering on the edge of collapse.

Silman and Kara have reportedly met in recent days, and Kara is seen as a potential future defector from the government.

The future of the current government hangs in the balance, and its path forward remains unclear.
