Despite struggling to cobble together a majority to pass the settler law, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is projecting confidence.

“We’ll get through this as well,” he tells reporters at the Knesset, noting the ruling coalition’s struggles since the government was formed last year.

Bennett makes the remarks before meeting with Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar, the bill’s chief backer, who is insisting the vote be held today despite the apparent lack of a majority.
