Netanyahu and Gantz sign unity government deal

The Likud and Blue and White announce that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz have signed an agreement to establish a “national emergency government.”

The deal will allow for Netanyahu to remain prime minister for a year and a half, after which he will be replaced by Gantz, as part of a rotation deal that will be bound in law.

Until then, Gantz will reportedly serve as defense minister, while Blue and White No. 2 Gabi Ashkenazi will serve as foreign minister.
