Opposition chief Yair Lapid responds to Defense Minister Yoav Gallant’s speech tonight, in which he called to halt the judicial overhaul.

“Defense Minister Gallant is taking a brave and vital step tonight for the security of the State of Israel. The coup seriously harms national security and it is his role and responsibility to stop the dangerous deterioration,” Lapid says in a statement.

“This is the moment of truth. I call on the government: Stop everything, do not pass the change in the committee for the appointment of judges and the Deri law this week, and come and hold talks at the president’s residence,” he adds.
