Israel is heading to its fifth election in three and a half years, after Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid gave up Monday on their efforts to stabilize the coalition. In a joint statement, Bennett and Lapid said they would bring a bill to dissolve the Knesset to a vote next Monday. There is a consensus in the coalition and opposition on an October 25 date for the election. Sources close to Bennett said the duo’s goal was to initiate an election on their own terms and not be forced out by opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu.

According to the coalition agreement, Lapid will become caretaker prime minister until the election and until the new government takes power. He is set to greet US President Joe Biden when he comes to Israel next month. At a Knesset press conference, Bennett said his move to initiate an election was “not easy” but “the right decision.” He said he did everything possible to maintain the government for longer.

Delicate timing on all that. Israel is facing several large threats from Iran, as well as the usual from Hezbollah and Hamas etc. Things with Russia aren't going well and the American State Dept is anti Israel along with the White House.
