Lapid offers opposition backing for military action against Gaza

Opposition leader Yair Lapid is offering rare support for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government following a rocket attack on southern Israel.

“The opposition will back the government in any military action that will bring quiet and security to residents of the south,” Lapid tweets.

The statement comes less than 15 minutes after the Yesh Atid head tweeted that southern residents “deserve a government that will take care of their security.”
