I'd say they're very possible. Netanyahu himself said there's a worldwide effort being made to topple him, and this could easily be part of it.

The sources said that after standing tough against the vote-sharing agreement, Balad would feel more comfortable giving in on the Herzog issue and backing him instead of the initial plan not to support anyone.
“The Joint List will do everything possible to ensure that Netanyahu will fall,” a Joint List source said. “At the right time the wise decision will be made.”
