A bill aimed at connecting illegal Israeli outposts to the power grid fails to garner enough votes to pass an initial vote.

As expected, the bill, put forward by opposition Likud MK Yariv Levin, did not get the support of right-wing coalition factions Yamina and New Hope.

Levin says their votes against the legislation are “a new height of shame, cynicism and the breaking of promises by people who don’t even care about the distress of small children.”
