Prime Minister Naftali Bennett did not update Defense Minister Benny Gantz on his decision to reveal that the Mossad has recently attempted to locate the remains of missing pilot Ron Arad, according to Israeli television reports.

Channel 12 news said that the premier told Gantz just before he made the revelation in a speech to the Knesset, with the defense chief lacking enough time to raise objections.

Bennett did, however, let Foreign Minister Yair Lapid know in advance, both Channel 12 and the Kan public broadcaster report.
