Recall that after 12 years in power, Benjamin Netanyahu lost the post of prime minister after the Israeli Parliament voted on Sunday a new coalition government.
The new government will be led by right-wing nationalist Naftali Bennett of the Yamina party, who was sworn in as prime minister, and will lead a broad coalition of parties.
Under the coalition agreement, Bennett, who leads the Yamina party, will hold the post of prime minister until September 2023, and then hand it over to Yair Lapid, the leader of the Yesh Atid party.
