ISRAELI KNESSET IN CHAOS OVER PASSAGE OF BILL FORCING ULTRA-ORTHODOX JEWS TO SERVE IN THE MILITARY

Israel's parliament moved ahead with a contentious law on conscripting ultra-Orthodox students into the military amid angry scenes.

The bill, could see some ultra-Orthodox Jews, who traditionally resist service, gradually enter the military.

Defence Minister Yoav Gallant voted against it, while religious coalition parties supported the bill.

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich:

"We have a great opportunity that should not be missed. The ultra-Orthodox public must not be pushed into a corner.

I will not endanger the State of Israel and its people.

I will not stop the war just before the destruction of Hamas because this an existential danger to Israel.”

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR ON THE CEASEFIRE:

WE SPOKE TO OUR AMERICAN "COUNTERPARTS"

They are definitely in this together and have NO INTENTION to ceasefire.

Listen to him:

"We accepted the outline of the deal, but we had our concerns about the way it would be interpreted by Hamas.

Phase 1 calls for the release of women and elderly people held by Hamas.

Moving to phase 2, it depends on an agreement between the parties to end hostilities.

One of our conditions is the future of Gaza.

We can't agree to Hamas continuing to be the rulers of Gaza."
