Cabinet to look at last government’s PA-related moves after arms transfer report

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his government will review all decisions made by the previous government regarding the Palestinian Authority, in a move seemingly aimed at deflecting blame for Israel reportedly authorizing a shipment of US weapons and armored vehicles to the PA.

Netanyahu’s office makes the announcement after a meeting with Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, who requested the urgent sit-down to protest the transfer, which is meant to bolster anti-terror operations in the northern West Bank

“Netanyahu ordered the National Security Council to present the cabinet with all decisions made by the last cabinet regarding the PA,” the statement reads. “This is aimed at tightening oversight and making sure the current government’s policies are implemented.”
