Finance Minister Yair Lapid called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to "behave responsibly" on Monday, saying it was "not too late" to reach achievements with the current government.

Speaking at a meeting of his Yesh Atid faction, Lapid said that the government could still "pass together a budget that helps to solve the Israeli housing crisis, ease tension on the streets and lower the level of violence instead of causing more and more schisms between the citizens of Israel; and,  above all, we can do what we were elected to do: lead the state of Israel in accordance with what's best for its citizens, not at their expense."
