PM Lapid's Remarks at the Start of the Weekly Cabinet Meeting

Israel - Prime Minister's Office


Following are Prime Minister Yair Lapid's remarks at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting, today:

"Our goal - that of this entire table - in the coming months will be to manage the government as if elections were not being held. The citizens of Israel are entitled to a government that constantly functions. This is what I expect from my fellow ministers.

The education crisis cannot wait. Budgets for hospitals cannot be postponed. The Iranians, Hamas and Hezbollah will not wait. We need to act against them persistently in every arena and this is exactly what we are doing.

.Yesterday, the IDF intercepted three hostile UAVs that tried to harm Israeli infrastructure in Israel's economic waters

Hezbollah is continuing on the path of terrorism and is hurting Lebanon's ability to reach an agreement on a maritime border. Israel will continue to defend itself, its citizens and its assets.

This government will continue to act for the good of the citizens, just as it has done throughout the past year. We will make decisions, we will take action and we will continue to increase the economic, diplomatic and security strength of Israel."
