President Isaac Herzog says he’s been working “around the clock” to broker an agreement between the coalition and opposition on judicial reform, warning Israel is in “a national emergency.”

“There is a possible basis for understandings, but there are still gaps that require the various sides to display responsibility,” Herzog says in a statement.

He adds: “Israeli citizens are thirsty for hope and expect responsibility and leadership. I call on elected officials to act bravely and to extend their hands in order to reach understandings.”
