Norway, Spain and Ireland announced to recognize Palestine as a state on May 28. Leaders of the countries said on Wednesday that their countries will formally recognize Palestine for peace in the Middle East.

Lapid said Netanyahu should announce that he will accept a future Palestinian state under certain conditions and certain guarantees. That Palestinian state will join the fight against terrorism. However, he did not elaborate on these conditions and guarantees in the press conference.

At that time, this opposition leader criticized Israel’s extreme right-wing security minister, Ben-Gavir, and said that he (Ben-Gavir) would not allow Netanyahu to recognize Palestine as a state. It will not happen during this government. It should be changed. Then we have to form an effective government.

Netanyahu came to government in 2022 with an alliance with the radical right. Since then, this coalition government has ruled Israel.
