Israel skips vote on return of Palestinian workers

Israel's security cabinet skipped the vote that would allow the return of West Bank Palestinian workers on Sunday.

The proposal, which was rejected by the 15-member socioeconomic cabinet, would have potentially allowed thousands of workers to return to work for the first time since October 7, but it was not brought in for a vote in the security cabinet.

The representatives of the Israeli Police stated their opposition to the proposal, while the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) voiced their support for the proposal, Walla News reports, citing a source who attended the meeting. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu didn't bring the issue to a vote.
