Israeli national radio said yesterday that a "crisis" was threatening Israel's government coalition.

The Hebrew channel quoted sources as saying that the government coalition was "facing a new crisis that threatens its stability," adding that chaos followed a ratification of a bill, which was initiated by the Knesset member for New Hope party, Sharren Haskel, to recognise individual farmers in the Negev and Galilee.

The sources noted that the Knesset's United Arab List was considering "boycotting all voting operations expected in the council's assembly, in protest against the approval," explaining that the "Labour and Meretz parties might be participating in the vote."
