State Camp MK Matan Kahana: If progress is made on a hostage deal, we will likely stay in the government

Kahana made this statement after State Camp party leader Benny Gantz threatened to leave the emergency government by mid-June if certain conditions weren't met.

This morning, State Camp MK Matan Kahana said in an interview for Reshet Bet radio that "they've started to feel towards a hostage deal again, which is one of the main reasons we are staying in the government. If we see that there is progress on the subject of the day after Gaza, we will likely stay in the government."

This contradicts State Camp party leader Benny Gantz's threat to leave the government by mid-June if certain conditions weren't met.
