US promises 'ironclad' support for whoever leads Israel

The United States said on Thursday that its "ironclad" support would remain in place for whoever leads Israel, with a coalition of opposition parties from across the political spectrum seeking to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after more than a decade in power.

A group of eight parties, including some unlikely political allies, such as the United Arab List (UAL) and Yisrael Beiteinu, reached an agreement on Wednesday to form a new coalition government.

Under the agreement, the head of the right-wing Yamina party, Naftali Bennett, who has said he has no problem with killing Arabs and has urged the bombing of Gaza, would serve as prime minister for two years before handing the position over to Yair Lapid, leader of the centrist Yesh Atid party.
