The Knesset's Land of Israel caucus, which will be launched Tuesday, will have 35 MKs, plus the outside support of several cabinet ministers who cannot join caucuses.

Yesh Atid MKs Dov Lipman and Pnina Tamnu-Shata have joined the caucus, though more Yesh Atid MKs have joined a rival caucus that supports two states for two peoples.

"The caucus will be the conscience of the government and the Knesset," said its leader, coalition chairman Yariv Levin. "We will work to strengthen our grasp over all of the land of Israel and maintain the settlement enterprise our of faith and knowledge that realizing our right to the land is our obligation and the best guarantee of Israel's security."

But Levin cautioned that the caucus would support Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's efforts to restart the diplomatic process with the Palestinians.

"This is not intended to be a maneuver against the prime minister, and it should not be interpreted that way," he said.
