The Israeli Cabinet this afternoon (Sunday) unanimously passed a statement rejecting attempts by international actors to impose a Palestinian state on Israel in the aftermath of the October 7 massacre.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who brought the statement for a vote, said at the start of the Cabinet meeting, "In light of remarks that have been heard recently in the international community about an attempt to unilaterally force a Palestinian state on Israel, today I submit for Government approval a declarative decision on the issue. I am certain that it will receive very broad support."
