Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blocked controversial legislation that would make it nearly impossible to divide Jerusalem ahead of a planned vote on Sunday.

The Prime Minister's Office said that the reason was that Netanyahu wanted the coalition to reach agreements on what the bill would look like rather than use a version put forward by Education Minister Naftali Bennett's Bayit Yehudi party.
