US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan has reportedly raised the matter of the planned overhaul of Israel’s judiciary during his meeting today with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a report says, the first such intervention by Washington in the deeply controversial plan.

The administration of US President Joe Biden initially weighed not mentioning the matter with Israeli leaders, but in recent days it has changed its stance, the Walla news site quotes an unnamed American official as saying.

The Prime Minister’s Office declines to comment.
