In Israel, the party of election challenger Benny Gantz has rejected an offer by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to join him in a unity government. Netanyahu’s surprise offer came after Tuesday’s election provided no clear winner. Both Netanyahu and Gantz ran on platforms vowing to take harsh measures targeting Palestinians, and have called on Israel to annex much of the occupied West Bank, in violation of international law.
