TEL AVIV – On Tuesday, Itamar Ben-Gvir, the far-right Israeli Minister of National Security, threatened to withdraw from the government due to any attempt to conclude an “unaccounted” agreement with Hamas to recover Israeli captives in Gaza, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.اضافة اعلان

“Unaccounted agreement = dismantling the government,” Ben-Gvir posted on X amid media reports that Israel is considering, through Qatari and Egyptian mediation, a long-term cessation of its military operations against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

In light of this news, Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich, the Israeli Finance Minister, expressed their anger at being excluded from Netanyahu’s mini-council responsible for making decisions regarding the war.

They demanded that Israeli military operations not be stopped and that resettlement be resumed in Gaza, from which Israel withdrew in 2005. Netanyahu ruled out rebuilding Jewish settlements there, but he says that Gaza will be under Israeli security control after the war.
