The latent disagreement between the Israeli Prime Minister has returned Benjamin Netanyahu And his Minister of Defense Yoav Galat It came to the fore again today, Saturday, when Gallant refused to hold a joint press conference with Netanyahu in Tel Aviv.
Netanyahu said that he proposed to Gallant to hold a joint press conference, but he “chose what he chose,” indicating that he held a separate press conference in Tel Aviv.
The Israeli Prime Minister added that he has a mandate from the Israelis to lead them, and that he does not act according to opinion polls.
He was referring to the frequent opinion polls that showed a significant decline in the popularity of the Israeli Prime Minister and the ruling right-wing parties, led by Likud, in contrast to the rise of the opposition parties.
Both Netanyahu and Gallant promised – in their press conferences – to continue the war on Gaza until the military strength of the Islamic Resistance Movement is undermined (agitation).
Signs of disagreement between the pillars of the Israeli War Council appeared during the first weeks of the war on Gaza.
The dispute emerged between them amid mutual accusations regarding failure to prevent an operation Al-Aqsa flood Which was carried out by the Palestinian resistance on the seventh of last October.
In the middle of last month, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and War Council member Benny Gantz shook hands after the end of a press conference in Tel Aviv, but they ignored Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
