TEL AVIV—Israeli lawmakers voted early Thursday to dissolve parliament, marking the end of the first Israeli coalition government to include an independent Arab party and setting the stage for the country’s fifth general election in less than four years.

Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, a centrist, is expected to become the country’s caretaker prime minister at midnight under a coalition agreement. He will remain so until a new government is formed after voters go to the polls on Nov. 1.
