Gantz moves forward with setting up committee of inquiry on Meron

Defense Minister Benny Gantz sends a proposal to establish a governmental committee of inquiry into the Meron disaster in April that left 45 people dead. Gantz has sent a letter and the request to the cabinet secretary, in alignment with the coalition deals that were signed by the new government mandating such an inquiry.

“This is a moral and ethical debt to the families [of the victims], and no less so, a need to investigation and to prevent tragic events like these in the future,” Gantz writes in the letter.
