Gantz said livid as Netanyahu keeps him in the dark about Mossad chief pick

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t inform Defense Minister Benny Gantz about his choice for new Mossad chief, amid deep distrust between the two, Hebrew-language media reports.

Gantz is said to have called Netanyahu and expressed his fury.

Formally, the prime minister isn’t obligated to inform the defense minister of that decision ahead of time, but that is the accepted practice.
