Zionist caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and election rival Benny Gantz met on Friday to keep hashing out the details of the ‘unity government’, saying the meeting saw progress in the talks.

With a coalition agreement between Gantz's Blue and White and the Likud in sight, the party leaders asked their teams to wrap up the negotiations as soon as possible so that the unity government could tackle the coronavirus pandemic. 

Gantz said in a statement on Friday that a unity government alone can save ‘Israel’ from the crisis brought about by the outbreak.

Both Gantz and Netanyahu fought three bitter but inconclusive elections over the past year, with neither securing enough support to form a viable coalition government.

Netanyahu, in office since 2009, was in January charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust, but the start of his trial has been delayed by the pandemic.
