Government ministers and deputy ministers who vote for the Knesset bills on Wednesday to retroactively legalize unauthorized Jewish construction in the settlements will be fired, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made clear Tuesday, after deciding that the government will oppose the bill.

Netanyahu said during a meeting in his office that the country has major challenges ahead -- such as passing a budget, getting all segments of society to equally share the country's burdens, and dealing with the problem of migrants.

The prime minister decided that only a united and disciplined government will be able to deal with those issues.
