The Israeli Occupation's National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich have reportedly threatened to dismantle the government and withdraw from it if a permanent ceasefire is announced in the Gaza Strip.

This comes amid the announcement of an additional extension of the truce agreement between the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, with the release of an additional batch of captives in Gaza in exchange for the release of more Palestinian detainees.

According to the "Walla" news website, Ben Gvir said Tuesday that "a cessation of war means the dissolution of the government," following discussions about extending the ceasefire in exchange for the release of more captives each day.
