Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is appealing to coalition partner Benny Gantz not to leave the country’s war cabinet.

“Don’t leave the crisis government. Don’t give up on unity,” says Netanyahu on X.

Gantz, the opposition leader and minister in the war cabinet, has threatened to resign if Netanyahu does not approve a post-war plan by June 8. Gantz canceled a planned press conference on Saturday, after four of the hostages were released from Gaza.
