Against the background of reports of progress in negotiations for a hostage deal and a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip, chairman of Otzma Yehudit Itamar Ben Gvir issued an unusual threat to Netanyahu.

"If the Prime Minister decides to end the war without an extensive attack on Rafah in order to defeat Hamas, he will not have a mandate to continue in office," he wrote.

Chairman of the Religious Zionism Party, Minister of Finance Bezalel Smotrich, is also preparing a decision regarding an impending deal and invited his party's MKs to an urgent consultations this morning (Monday).

According to reports from Egyptian sources, significant progress was made overnight regarding the American proposal that was offered to the parties.

Israeli and Hamas representatives left Cairo today and will return on Wednesday to sign the deal. According to reports, the US may force Israel to end the war, a step that could shake up Netanyahu's government.
