Defense Minister Benny Gantz says that he is working to stabilize the current government following the defection of Yamina MK Idit Silman this morning.

“I spoke with the prime minister today and we are working to try and preserve the government,” Gantz says following a meeting of his Blue and White faction. “Blue and White has been and will continue to be the most disciplined and central faction in the coalition.”

Gantz says that his party wants the government to remain in place “and in that sense nothing has changed since yesterday.”
