2:02 am
a series of talks with legal insecurity officials and i realize that in 10 days what the expiration of the regulations is, right will experience serious security damages and legal chaos. i couldn't allow that will kill law sophomore. we spirit know if that galvanized for me the was needed to pass the regulations, but unfortunately if it's poor, no fruit can therefore my friend and i decided to act together to dissolve parliament and sit and agreed upon date for elections. the up who will bernard smith has more from western whistle m. israel had to it's 50 election in 3 and a half years. it's a surprise to many israelis that this coalition has lasted as long as it has when it was pulled together just over a year ago. it was a strange combination of colonies from the far right, the right, the left and for the 1st time, palestinian israeli were included in the government. but its sole purpose really was to get rid of benjamin netanyahu as prime minister. he's been israel prime
2:03 am
minister previously for a total of 15 years and netanyahu once the job back and he was he who engineered the collapse of his government with his opposition partners. he voted against the extension of a settler bill every 5 years. this comes up in israel's parliament and it normally passed automatically extent. it allows the extension of. busy israeli law into the settlements by failing to extend this law. netanyahu's coalition has precipitated the collapse of the government, the war expires at the end of this month. but because there's going to be new elections, it will be automatically extended for another 6 months. those new elections will be held probably before some time in mid october. and until then. yeah, i like people stand in inter and prime minister daniel levy is the president of the us middle east project. and a former is really negotiator. he says the collapse of this parliament is not
2:04 am
a surprise, and it's a real opportunity for former prime minister benjamin netanyahu to make his return to politics. the parliament will vote to dissolve itself. the date has been agreed. i believe for late october, there's the jewish holiday season, jewish new year tournament in october. it will be at the end of october unless not an yahoo computer away enough members to form a majority of 61 in the current parliament. that seems very unlikely that the betting will be against that. so the likelihood is elections, not and young, looks pretty strong in those elections. he's in court defending himself. he kind of needs this to assist his court position. there are strong suggestions that he would try and change things so that the court case itself could not continue if his prime minister again, he poles highest in the opinion polls consistently. he's party poles, highest the question as ever with this rambunctious but very unusual,
2:05 am
is rated politics of so many small, medium sized parties, is whether him and his allies will get to the magic number. i think you will go into the selection. i'm in a stronger position, with the semi assumption being it's his to lose. ah! russia is urging lithuania to lift a ban on the transit of some goods to color and garage on the baltic sea. the russian enclave is wedged between lithuania and poland. the restrictions effect, the only rail route between main line russia on the territory between officials say the ban will be on good sanctioned by the you across its territory. it includes coal and other metals. the kremlin has vowed to respond if passage isn't restored. samuel romani is an associate fellow the royal united services institute and he
2:06 am
explains how the sanctions will affect cullen and grad. so helen and grad is an important transit route to obviously the european union because of a strategic location here the baltic sea lithuania, poland has also an important area for a lot of the transit of key russian military assets as well. including iskander is a nuclear heap. of muscles weight restrictions have been factored in for some time . poland actually was the originator of this idea in the came point plan that poland had in the war and ukraine. one of the plans was due band with cargo and ro transit between russia and european countries, and the u sanctions on the on coal and other goods have been in effect for well over a month now. so the russians about trying to factor this in, but it's still in the media blow, one half of counting grants. products, for example, come from european countries, though as an immediate supply chain. yet russia currently threatens already the baltic states ever since the 1990 s. and the target of doctrine came forward when they attacked the baltic states for supposedly discriminating against that russians . we've seen a russian alter nationalist like body. marcella saw the av and the media where the
