Gantz meets Liberman as coalition talks continue

Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz and Avigdor Liberman, who heads the Yisrael Beytenu party, are meeting amid Gantz’s efforts to cobble together a unity coalition.

Gantz met yesterday with Netanyahu, his chief rival, who returned the mandate to form the next government to the president after failing to secure a Knesset majority.
