Benjamin Netanyahu, Benny Gantz, Yoav Gallant to set up “war cabinet”


Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz have agreed to form an emergency government, a “war cabinet” will also be set up – with Netanyahu, Gantz and the country’s defence minister, Yoav Gallant.

Meanwhile, the death toll in Israel from the Hamas attacks has reached 1,200, mostly civilians, with more than 1,000 people – also largely civilians – have been killed by Israeli air strikes on Gaza.

Israel has shelled Lebanese territory in response to an attack from Hezbollah killed at least three Hezbollah militants on Monday, and Israel said one of its officers was killed during an earlier cross-border raid claimed by Palestinians in Lebanon.

The cross-border violence marked a significant expansion of a conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza to the Israeli-Lebanese border further north.
