Israelis are again facing uncertainty when it comes to their government. After Tuesday’s announcement of the ruling coalition’s collapse, the country faces two scenarios: either October elections or a new government within days.


For years, what’s called a “war between wars” has existed between Israel and Iran, where much of the fighting takes place in the shadows. This shadow war is coming more and more out into the open.

Israel’s parliament will begin the process of dissolving itself on Wednesday, bringing Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s governing coalition to an end after months of political crises and triggering the country’s fifth election in just three years.

Israel’s defense minister on Monday said that Israel is helping build a U.S.-led regional air-defense alliance against Iran, and that the partnership has already thwarted attempted Iranian attacks.


Israel’s weakened coalition government decided Monday to dissolve parliament and call a new election, the country's fifth in three and a half years. The vote, expected later this year, could bring about the return of a nationalist religious government led by former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or another prolonged period of political gridlock.
