Benjamin Netanyahu meets with supporters

 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with local mayors who support Likud on Monday.
"I feel the energies in the field," he said. "There are energies I have never felt before - and I am not generally considered optimistic. There is a lot of pain but also a lot of support from Israeli citizens."
"We still have a mission and to the extent possible to form a unity government," Netanyahu added. "The contacts did not stop - they exist. This is necessary for reasons not all of which I can elaborate on."
Lod Mayor Haim Revivo, Modiin Mayor Haim Bibs, Bat Yam Mayor Tzvika Brot and others expressed their support of the prime minister.
