Netanyahu's New Israeli Government Approved

Israel’s parliament approved on Sunday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new unity government, ending more than a year of political deadlock, but he still faces a trial starting next week for alleged corruption, Reuters reports. 

His decision to share power with former rival, centrist Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, opens the way for Netanyahu to proceed towards a pledged annexation of parts of the occupied West Bank, land that Palestinians seek for a state.

After three inconclusive elections, the conservative Netanyahu will remain prime minister for 18 months before handing over to his new partner.
