US 'deeply concerned' by situation in 'Israel', urges a compromise: WH
Commenting on the chaos in "Israel", a White House spokesperson says the US believes that a compromise is the best path forward for "Israel".
A White House spokesperson on Sunday pointed out that the United States is deeply concerned by events in "Israel" and "strongly urges" Israeli leaders to find a compromise as soon as possible.
Earlier, Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed Security Minister Yoav Gallant, a day after the latter called for a halt to the government's "judicial overhaul" legislation that would undermine the power of the Israeli Supreme Court.
"We continue to strongly urge Israeli leaders to find a compromise as soon as possible. We believe that is the best path forward for Israel," White House National Security Council Spokesperson, Adrienne Watson, said in a statement.
In the same context, Israeli media cited senior officials in the US administration as saying that they are very concerned about the situation in "Israel" and Gallant's dismissal.
This comes as Israeli media reported on Sunday that thousands of Israeli settlers took to the streets to protest the government's planned "judicial overhaul" and Netanyahu's decision to dismiss Gallant.
The Israeli Channel 12 reported that Netanyahu is considering announcing on Monday morning that he will halt the "judicial overhaul", adding that the occupation PM is reported to be at his office conducting "security and legal discussions." But "Justice" Minister Yariv Levin is threatening to resign if he does so.
