Yamina MK Nir Orbach, who is due to meet Prime Minister Naftali Bennett shortly, intends to tell the premier that he, Orbach, will likely support bringing down the government within days unless rebel lawmakers aren’t immediately brought back in line, according to Channel 12 news.

“We promised to form a government that will focus on civil matters, but instead Palestinian nationalism is raising its head. This will not continue,” Orbach will allegedly tell Bennett.

Orbach has reportedly decided to vote in favor of dissolving the Knesset unless rebels Idit Silman and Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi are brought back in, or unless there is a majority for forming an alternative government headed by opposition chief Benjamin Netanyahu.
