Government pulls bill amid coalition infighting, Ben Gvir threatens

The government pulls a bill scheduled to be voted on tonight to increase funding for religious councils amid coalition infighting and threats from the far-right Otzma Yehudit party that it would not support the bill.

Party leader Itamar Ben Gvir has refused to vote with the government unless he gets a seat on the so-called war cabinet.

Channel 12 says that the Shas party, which has been pushing the bill, has walked out of the Knesset in protest.
