After being summoned to a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant calls off plans to give a statement.
Gallant had been expected to call for a halt to the judicial overhaul legislation.
“Defense Minister Yoav Galant met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this evening and presented him with the impact of the legislative processes on the IDF and the defense establishment,” Gallant’s office says in a statement after the meeting.
“At the prime minister’s request and in light of his planned statement this evening, the minister of defense is delaying his statement at this stage,” the statement says.
