Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Wednesday, 19 June 2024) [translated from Hebrew]:

"We are fighting on several fronts and face great challenges and difficult decisions.

Therefore, I demand that all coalition partners get a hold of themselves and rise to the importance of the hour.

This is not the time for petty politics or for legislation that endangers the coalition, which is fighting for victory over our enemies.

We must all focus solely on the tasks at hand: Defeating Hamas, returning all of our hostages and returning our residents securely to their homes, both in the north and the south.

Therefore, I demand that everyone put aside every other consideration. Put aside all extraneous interests. Line up, as one, together, behind our fighters."
