Opposition Leader Yair Lapid welcomes National Unity party chairman Benny Gantz’s announcement that he is withdrawing his faction from the coalition.

“Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot’s decision to leave the government is both justified and important,” he says in a statement.

“It’s time to replace this extremist and failing government with a government that will restore security for the people of Israel, bring the hostages home, rebuild the economy and restore Israel’s international standing.”
