Gantz to Netanyahu: No, *you’re* attempting a coup

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz hits back at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tirade against the state prosecution, following the premier’s appearance at his corruption trial.

Netanyahu, at a press conference, accused prosecutors of trying to remove him from power, alleging an attempted “coup” and a “witch hunt” against him.

“Netanyahu proved tonight that he is not fit to serve as prime minister, and he is the one who is trying to carry out a government coup. His attack against the State Attorney’s Office was intended for one purpose — to delegitimize the outcome of the trial and attempt to gain unlimited power. I call on all factions to unite and find a way to replace him,” tweets Gantz.
