Benjamin Netanyahu has lost his 12-year hold on power in Israel after the country's parliament voted in a new coalition government.

Right-wing nationalist Naftali Bennett, of the Yamina party, will be sworn in as the new prime minister.

Mr Bennett will hold office until September 2023 as part of a power-sharing deal.

He will hand then over to Yair Lapid, leader of the centrist Yesh Atid, for a further two years.

    Hilarious! Net and yahoo was on a path to eliminate the Palestinians from the face of the earth. Israel may need a powerful government but not a maniac at the helm. He has acted with total impunity.
