Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet this evening with National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, Hebrew media reports.

The two are expected to discuss the demand by Ben Gvir’s Otzma Yehudit party for more funds for his party’s Negev and Galilee Ministry. Ben Gvir has threatened repeatedly not to support the crucial state budget if this demand isn’t met.

The government will automatically collapse and snap elections will be triggered if the budget doesn’t pass in the next seven days.
