Good Afternoon 🌤
A) As expected PM Netanyahu comfortably won✌🏼the Likud leadership challenge from Gidon Saar. He now has the mandate👑 to lead his party into the upcoming elections.
B) Torrential downpours⛈ saw records📈 for rainfall broken over the weekend. The rain caused extensive damage and resulted in the deaths of two people😞. The level of the Kinneret🚣🏽♂ rose significantly.
C) Defense Minister Bennett has announced that Israel will withhold 43 million dollars💲in tax revenues from the Palestinian Authority🇵🇸 which is the amount the PA pay to terrorists and their families.
- Why do you think Gidon Saar felt it so important to contest a leadership race he knew he couldn’t win?
- How do you think his victory has strengthened PM Netanyahu’s role in the Likud Party?
