Bennett attempts to bury hatchet with Netanyahu

Education Minister Naftali Bennett tells Channel 2 news that he does not plan on getting into any more tiffs with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after the two fought a public spat over the latter’s conduct in the lead up to the 2014 war with Gaza.

Bennett says he is busy with educational issues — school begins in three days — and vows to bury a previously prickly relationship and work with the prime minister and let the state comptroller have the final word on missteps in the lead-up to the 2014 war.

“Even if he attacks me, I don’t intend to attack him back. We are in the same government and working together. What I’m busy with now is education and not answering the prime minister’s attack on me,” he says.
