Bennett meets with Gantz despite denials of contacts with ‘change bloc’ — TV

Yamina chief Naftali Bennett met today with Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, despite his claims of not holding talks with the “change bloc” of anti-Netanyahu parties, Channel 12 news reports.

Yamina doesn’t deny the tete-a-tete at a Tel Aviv hotel but claims the “routine meeting” with Gantz, who is defense minister, was scheduled during the recent fighting in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the Kan public broadcaster says Yamina negotiators met yesterday with their counterparts in Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud party.
