    Bennett spoke at the start of the weekly cabinet session, his last before he vacates the office of the prime minister. He thanked his ministers for their hard work, and always putting Israeli citizens above all else.
    "This was an excellent government that relied on a complicated coalition, and here in this room there are groups of people who knew how to put aside ideological differences, rise above them and act for the sake of Israel," Bennetsaid.
    "There governments who served for long terms with very meager accomplishments, we served for a short term but with incredible accomplishments," Bennett said.
