Education Minister Naftali Bennett demanded an emergency Cabinet meeting to formulate an operational plan to restore peace in the south in light of the tense situation with the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

"Israel needs a full-time defense minister. If a missile fell in Tel Aviv, they would not let it continue," Bennett told Prime Minister Netanyahu.

"Israel lacks a full-time defense minister. The residents of the south deserve security. If they were dropping explosives on houses in Tel Aviv or if a missile were launched at them, the IDF would stop them," Bennett said." We have to say honestly: with all due respect to Netanyahu, a country like Israel needs a full-time defense minister."

Bennett demands that the IDF present the Cabinet with an operational plan for restoring calm to the south, which will be implemented immediately.
