Yesh Atid leader, MK Yair Lapid, MK Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid) and several other Knesset members sent a letter Monday morning to the Chairman of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, demanding that the committee hold an immediate discussion in order to understand how Prime Minister Netanyahu intends to lead Israel in the international crisis that continues to develop since the UN's Security Council passed resolution 2334 on Friday.

In the letter, Lapid and Shelah state that "in the past day, following the Security Council's decision regarding the settlements, we are witnessing a dangerous deterioration in Israel's foreign affairs, including with some of the world's powers and some of Israel's closest allies."They went on to explain the necessity of an urgent convening of the committee: "We think that it's mandatory that we gather the committee and summon the prime minister who is also the Foreign Affairs Minister, so that the committee can hear how he intends to deal with this crisis."
