PM to invite opposition heads for security briefing — except Joint (Arab) List

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to invite the heads of four opposition parties for a security briefing in the coming days.

Although he is required by law to only brief the head of the opposition, namely Zionist Union party leader Isaac Herzog, Netanyahu will extend the invitation to Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid, Yisrael Beytenu’s Avigdor Liberman and Meretz party head Zehava Gal-on.

The head of the Joint (Arab) List party, Ayman Odeh, is not expected to receive an invitation.

The briefing is expected to focus on recent events in Israel, including the wave of stabbing and other attacks that has gripped the country in recent weeks and claimed the lives of seven Israelis.

Netanyahu recently called for a national unity government, and that issue is also expected to come up, according to a report on the Walla news website.
