Amid deepening political tensions over the government’s far-reaching plans to change the judicial system, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Yair Lapid are due to meet this evening for a routine security briefing.

An official in Lapid’s office says the meeting will only deal with security matters, reiterating “there isn’t and won’t be dialogue until all the legislative processes are stopped.”

Ahead of the meeting with Netanyahu, Lapid is holding talks with National Unity leader Benny Gantz, the Ynet news site says.
