Why does Israel’s new far-right government matter?
Essential Middle East looks into Israel’s newly formed right-wing government and its provocative acts in the holy land.
As Israel’s new government was sworn into office, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gathered the most right-wing ministers in the country’s history. With ultranationalists and ultra-orthodox Jewish parties placed in notable positions, the new cabinet has pledged to expand illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.
Far-right minister Itamar Ben-Gvir has even kicked off international condemnation by entering the Al Aqsa Mosque compound, a move many Palestinians described as “unprecedented provocation”.
