The Israeli parliament met on Sunday to vote on the new coalition government's confidence. Yair Lapid, the leader of Israel's largest opposition party, Yesh Atid, has succeeded in forming a government that has installed Naftali Bennett, the leader of the right-wing Yamina party, as prime minister, ending Benjamin Netanyahu's 12-year reign.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - US President Joe Biden on Sunday said that separate press conferences with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Geneva were not a matter of "contest."
In a recent interview, considered "scandalous" by some Israeli media, the ex-Israeli spy chief revealed details about Mossad's secret operations targeting Iran. In particular, he hinted at Israel's possible role in the incident at Iran's Natanz plant and its alleged involvement in the assassination of the top Iranian nuclear scientist.

The Alabama TV anchor previously indicated that he has been receiving a lot of death threats ever since he broke the story. The latter sparked allegations in 2016 that the Clintons tried to bury the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.
Joe Biden spent most of 2020 criticising former US President Donald Trump's response to the raging pandemic, and has since sought to take credit for the vaccination programme his predecessor began, while promoting his internationalist image with a recent pledge to donate 500 million leftover doses to developing nations.
The Zelensky administration has recently raised hopes that Ukraine will be allowed to join NATO "as soon as possible" – just as Kiev received a $150-million military aid package from the US. But Paolo Raffone, a strategic analyst and director of the CIPI Foundation in Brussels, believes that Ukraine is hardly strategically important to the bloc.
The development comes three days before the 78-year-old US president holds talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Switzerland. Ahead of the meeting, Biden said he would be tough on the Russian head of state. "I’ll let him know what I want him to know", the Democrat said.
