CGTN published this video item, entitled “Israel forms new unity government ousting Netanyahu” – below is their description.
A deal has been reached to form a coalition government in Israel that’s set to end the 12-year rule of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The power-sharing agreement involving eight parties was announced just ahead of a midnight deadline on Wednesday. Naftali Bennet, leader of a small nationalist party will initially serve as prime minister. But under a rotating arrangement, the centrist leader Yair Lapid will later take over the premiership. And for the first time – an Arab-led party will be part of the government in Israel. The deal still needs to be approved by the Knesset in a vote that is expected to take place next week.CGTN YouTube Channel
