Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Monday that he will not renew the mandate of the international observers in Hebron, leading a similar group to announce its departure as well. The Israeli government claims the groups exacerbate the tensions in the city by advancing a pro-Palestinian biased image of the situation in the city.
In the wake of Israeli airstrikes targeting Iranian military sites in Syria, Russia released what seemed to be conflicting statements; decrying “arbitrary Israeli airstrikes” on one hand while at the same time claiming they were deeply concerned about “ensuring a very strong security of the State of Israel.” With a major military presence in Syria, it is essential to understand Russia’s intentions for the region.
A new poll by Israel’s public news agency, Kan, indicates most Israelis want to see the attorney general’s decision on whether or not indict Netanyahu before the election day on April 9. Plus, long-time politician Tzipi Livni appears to be slipping in the polls, so much that she might not be in the next parliament.
