Martin Indyk, the former US ambassador to Israel, has urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to step down. Indyk expressed his views on the social media platform X, previously known as Twitter.

In a recent post, Indyk responded to another user’s comment about Netanyahu’s political actions during the ongoing war with Hamas. He criticized Netanyahu for causing a rift with President Joe Biden, describing Netanyahu’s insistence on staying in power as a “clear and present danger to Israel.” Indyk emphasized the urgency of his resignation, saying, “He needs to resign…yesterday!”

This call for resignation coincides with a significant move by the United States in the United Nations Security Council. The US used its veto power to block a resolution demanding an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, which would have required Israel to stop its military operations against Hamas. Thirteen members voted in favor of the resolution, while the United Kingdom abstained. Netanyahu lauded the US’s veto, arguing that stopping the war would hinder efforts to eliminate Hamas.

This comes as the Gaza Health Ministry reported over 17,000 Palestinian casualties, and Israel is reporting 1,200 Israeli civilian deaths + roughly 100 soldiers who have been killed since the assault on Gaza.
