Opposition Leader Yair Lapid calls on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fire National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir after he tweeted “Hamas loves Biden.”

“If Netanyahu does not fire Ben Gvir today, he is endangering every soldier in the IDF and every citizen in the State of Israel,” Lapid declares in a statement.

Ben Gvir was responding to US President Joe Biden’s threat to withhold arms in the event of a full-on Rafah incursion.
