Is Netanyahu, PM Israel, under pressure to resign?

Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel on April 14, in retaliation for an alleged Israeli airstrike in Syria, represented the most dangerous round of conflict between the two countries in decades. This attack involved more than 350 ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and drones.
Israeli media are reporting the government has received indications from legal officials that the International Criminal Court is considering issuing arrest warrants for senior officials, including prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The Iran-Israel conflict also serves as a reminder that countries do not just stumble into war. Leaders climb onto the escalation ladder willingly and in turn generate dynamics that they cannot easily unmake. The question now is how the United States and others can unwind these dynamics for a more stable, peaceful security environment. Missile defense plays a critical role, but technology won’t save Israel from having to answer hard questions over its security strategy.
Israeli policymakers will face difficult trade-offs in managing their national security priorities. Hamas’s October 7 attacks inevitably pulled Israel into Gaza, but Israeli policymakers have chosen a maximalist approach that has pushed allies and partners away. These same relationships, particularly with the United States and Israel’s Arab neighbors, are especially important given their mutual aims in deterring and defeating Iranian aggression. Perhaps this week’s conflict—and the cooperation it prompted—may serve as a reminder of that common goal. The question is the conflict between Israel and Iran will escalate to new scale. What shape this conflict will take? Is Netanyahu under pressure to resign from the post of the Prime Minister of Israel? Guest:- Dr Waeel Awwad, Prof Md. Muddassir Quamar, Namit Verma and Senior Journalist Kallol Bhattacherjee
