Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is meeting in person with Defense Minister Yoav Gallant for the first time since Gallant publicly called for Netanyahu to make “tough decisions” on post-war Gaza two weeks ago, Ynet reports.

The two are meeting at the Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv ahead of scheduled war cabinet and security cabinet meetings.

The meeting also comes after Minister Benny Gantz’s National Unity party submitted a bill to dissolve the Knesset, ahead of his party’s expected departure from the emergency coalition it joined at the start of the war with Hamas.

Netanyahu, Gantz and Gallant are the only three voting members of the war cabinet.
