Gantz said to tell party MKs: No agreements reached, we’re going to elections

Casting further doubt on a report by Channel 13 of “dramatic” progress in talks for a deal that would avert early elections from being called next week, Defense Minister Benny Gantz reportedly tells members of his Blue and White party that no agreements have been reached.

Party sources are quoted by Ynet as saying that at a Hanukkah candle-lighting event at the home of Science Minister Izhar Shay, Gantz said no understandings have been reached and that the country is going to elections.
