Gallant statement in doubt after he’s summoned to Netanyahu meeting

Reports say it is unlikely Defense Minister Yoav Gallant will give his much-anticipated statement, and certainly not at 19:30 as planned, in which he was expected to call for a halt to judicial overhaul legislation.

Gallant was due to give his statement in Tel Aviv, but has now traveled to Jerusalem after being summoned for a meeting by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Channel 12 reports.

In the hours after Gallant’s plan to speak was announced, he has come under widespread criticism from coalition members, including calls for his resignation.
