Israelis are casting ballots today in the country’s second parliamentary elections this year. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the vote after he failed to build a coalition government following April’s election. Netanyahu has vowed to annex nearly a third of the occupied West Bank if he wins today’s election. He is currently facing possible indictments over multiple corruption cases. Netanyahu and his far-right Likud party are facing off against ex-military chief Benny Gantz and his Blue and White party. If both parties fail again to win a majority, they may end up forming a unity government.
