New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Naftali Bennett on becoming the new Prime Minister of Israel.

Israeli Parliament, commonly known as Knesset, approved the new government by just a single vote -- 60 to 59, with one abstention.

"As you complete your successful tenure as the Prime Minister of the State of Israel, I convey my profound gratitude for your leadership and personal attention to India-Israel strategic partnership @netanyahu," tweeted PM Modi.
