That is why the Israeli government is on the verge of collapse

The current ruling coalition government in Israel has announced that it will dissolve parliament next week. If so, the country will hold its fifth election in just three years.
Under what circumstances did the Israeli government decide to dissolve parliament, and what will happen next in the country, according to an analysis by Qatar-based Al Jazeera.

Only a year ago, Israel’s current coalition government came to power. The eight-party alliance includes right-wing, moderate, and even a group representing Palestinians living in Israel. However, from the beginning of the formation of the government, the condition of this alliance was shaky.

The alliance was formed in June last year by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yar Lapid amid two years of political instability in Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu had to step down as prime minister 12 years after the Bennett-Lapid alliance came to power.

The main reason behind the unification of the parties in the coalition government was the opposition to the government of former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But in the end, anti-Netanyahu sentiment could not keep them under one umbrella.

In recent times, differences between the parties of the alliance have escalated. Rumors have been circulating for weeks that the alliance could break up in such a situation.

The current ruling coalition walks that path
The Bennett-Lapid alliance came to power with a narrow majority in parliament. In addition, there were differences of opinion among the coalition members on some fundamental issues, such as the state, religion, the Palestinian state and the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. The main rift began when some members of parliament left the alliance.

Idit Silman, a member of Bennett’s right-wing Yamina party, left the party last April. As a result, the ruling coalition lost a majority in Israel’s 120-seat parliament. In the last few weeks, there have been several defections and revolts. As a result, the Bennett government has lost the power to pass laws in parliament. The question of the government’s survival in such a situation had already been raised.

Meanwhile, the United Arab League has threatened to pull out of the alliance in protest of Israeli attacks on Palestinians at the Al-Aqsa Mosque premises and Israeli security forces’ operations in the occupied West Bank. Recently, a member of Yamina Party also sat on the bench. He said earlier this month that he would not vote for the ruling coalition in parliament.
