Netanyahu warns early elections in Israel would be ‘irresponsible’

Jerusalem (CNN)Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned early elections would pose a risk to national security as he struggles to hold together his fraying coalition government.

Last week, Netanyahu’s right-wing coalition faced its most serious challenge since coming to power nearly four years ago after a key minister resigned and others called for a new government.
The crisis was sparked Wednesday by the resignation of defense minister Avigdor Liberman who opposed a ceasefire with Gaza militants that was struck on November 13, bringing an end to the most severe round of fighting between the two sides since the 2014 war.
