Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at a Likud-Beytenu faction meeting Monday that Israel was facing three main challenges: Security, budget reforms and social equality. 

"We won't accept firing at us from North or South," Netanyahu said vowing to defend the country's security interests.

In regard to budget reforms, Netanyahu stated that they would be passed to encourage development and protect employment, such as the Open Skies agreement, the first of many reforms to lower the cost of living in this term.

Among challenges, Netanyahu also listed passage of a new bill to appease the burden of social inequality without creating conflict between sectors.
