Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu convened the diplomatic-security cabinet for a meeting Wednesday morning to discuss the escalation along Israel’s frontier with the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

While the meeting was scheduled day ago, it takes on added significance in light of the heightened tensions that have captured headlines in recent days. The ministers were expected to deliberate over the security situation in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza as well as the imminent release of Palestinian prisoners.

A number of ministers are expected to pressure the premier to delay the upcoming release – the third such move in a series of releases – in light of the escalating tensions.
