Major Israeli Supreme Court ruling rocks Netanyahu's coalition [View all]

Source: Axios

The Israeli Supreme Court in a 10-1 ruling revoked the appointment of Aryeh Deri, leader of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party and a key ally of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as a senior minister in the government.
