Benjamin Netanyahu says defence minister will remain in post despite sacking

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, stated that his defense minister would remain in office despite having been fired two weeks ago.

Mr Netanyahu stated that Yoav Gallant was being resigned from his position after he made a Televised Statement calling for an end to the controversial judicial reforms.

The news caused immediate and dramatic protests. This included the temporary closing of Ben Gurion Airport and a large walkout by Israeli unions.

As a result, Mr Netanyahu was forced from the table to suspend reforms. He is currently engaged in compromise negotiations.

He didn’t and Netanyahu was forced to climb down again in just a few weeks.
