HeadlineJun 17, 2024

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dissolved Israel’s war cabinet following the recent resignation of former military chief Benny Gantz. This comes as mass protests continue in Israel calling for the government to support a ceasefire and hostage deal and for new elections. Tens of thousands protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday. Several groups have vowed to intensify their protests by launching what they call a week of resistance.

Here in the United States, Democratic Congressmember Ro Khanna of California has announced he will join other lawmakers and boycott Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress.
