Opposition leader Yair Lapid mocks the range of cabinet ministers who have come out against a statement from the government following a summit with the Palestinians in Jordan earlier today.

“It can’t be that the State of Israel sends an official delegation of the highest rank to a US-backed summit, comes to agreements and then senior ministers in the cabinet tweet against themselves,” writes Lapid. “This is not a government, this is dangerous chaos.”

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir tweets following news of Israel agreeing to a brief settlement freeze in Aqaba: “What happened in Jordan (if it happened) stays in Jordan.”

Negev and Galilee Minister Yitzhak Wasserlauf writes: “If someone does a summit in Jordan without involving the government, they shouldn’t expect the government to back its conclusions.”

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich vowed that there would not be a settlement freeze “for even one day.”
