Science and Technology Minister Ya'acov Peri appealed to the cabinet on Monday a decision made Sunday by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation to allow courts to sentence terrorists to life without pardon.

Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett called the move "a stain on Yesh Atid and said that lives were endangered every day the bill's passage was postponed." The full cabinet will vote Sunday on the bill, which would have come to a preliminary reading in the Knesset Wednesday had it not been appealed.
