Israeli Minister of Education Naftali Bennett threatened to withdraw from his government party his Jewish client if he did not receive a defense portfolio due to the sudden resignation of Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

"If Bennetta does not become a minister of defense, his party will reject the ruling coalition," said Jeruzalem post.

The Israeli broadcasting company earlier mentioned Likud senior official that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu probably would have taken over the defense portfolio after Lieberman's exit.

Lieberman suddenly resigned from his post Wednesday after a ceasefire between Palestinian rebel factions and Israel.

Lieberman announced his resignation at a closed meeting of members of his party, Yisrael Beitein.

If Bennet's Jewish party withdraws from the government, the current current government of the Likud coalition, led by Likud, will lose its kneset majority, which makes it vulnerable to a parliamentary vote on confidence.
