- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will face pressure to call for early elections as his coalition risks crumbling over the cease-fire with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
- A new Israeli government could shift the country's relationship with the United States, Russia, Turkey and other major allies — especially because Netanyahu has held his seat for so long.
- Qatar's value as an ally risks becoming tarnished if its efforts to support the latest cease-fire fail to calm the tense situation in Gaza.
