What does Benny Gantz's ultimatum mean for Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition government?

A new crisis for Benjamin Netanyahu at a time when public anger against his handling of the war on Gaza is rising with each passing week.

Senior minister Benny Gantz is threatening to quit Israel's coalition government if Netanyahu doesn't come up with a plan for the strip's post-war governance within three weeks.

Gantz has tabled his own goals, which include an international coalition to administer Gaza's civil affairs.

It's put Netanyahu in a tough spot. Accepting the suggestions put forward by Gantz could cost Netanyahu the support of far-right partners and topple his government. So, how will the deepening divisions in the war cabinet affect his coalition? And what could they mean for the future of Israel's war on Gaza?
