No-Confidence Motions Delayed

Five motions of no confidence in the government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu were taken off the agenda for Monday's opening of the summer session of the Knesset following the passing of his father, Professor Ben-Tzion Netanyahu.

The motions will apparently be introduced following the Shiv'ah (first seven-days of mourning) period.
