At the start of his Blue and White Knesset faction meeting, Defense Minister Benny Gantz says he’ll “do everything to prevent elections,” adding that he hopes to bring in support from Haredi parties.

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman tells his Yisrael Beytenu faction that he sees a likeness between former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas’s Gaza leader Yahya Sinwar.

“Those acting against the government are the Sinwar-Netanyahu coalition — messianic, outlandish people.”
