On Twitter, former prime minister and defense minister Ehud Barak slams the protesters and says Netanyahu must back up Eisenkot.
“‘Gadi be careful’ is a threat to murder. One chief of staff was already murdered here. Netanyahu was also silent then. It’s not the time to be deaf now. It’s the time to protect the IDF and the sane Israel. Netanyahu must immediately back up the chief of staff,” he writes.
