Opposition party chairs Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz meet at the Knesset, where they discuss “the importance of backing IDF and security force operational activity,” in a joint statement issued by their parties.

Both Lapid and Gantz issued statements supporting Israel’s security forces, shortly after the Israel Air Force killed three senior figures in Palestinian Islamic Jihad yesterday.

The attack, itself a response to PIJ rocket barrages on Israel’s south last week, elicited a fresh volley of over 100 rockets fired at Israel’s south and center this afternoon.

The two also discussed “coordination of joint moves” concerning judicial overhaul negotiations with the coalition, currently hosted by the President’s Residence.
