Why a truce could endanger Netanyahu's political survival ?

International mediators are calling on both Israel and Hamas to agree to a cease-fire proposal put forward by US President Joe Biden.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is under intense domestic pressure. Some want him to reach a truce and secure the immediate release of hostages taken by Hamas during their October 7th terror attack.

But Netanyahu's far-right allies are threatening to bring down the government if he does so.
