Opposition Leader Yair Lapid calls for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to follow the example set by IDF Military Intelligence Directorate chief Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva, suggesting he should resign over the failures surrounding the October 7 Hamas terror onslaught.

Commending Haliva for his “justified and respected” decision to resign from his position once a replacement is appointed, Lapid writes on X that “Prime Minister Netanyahu should have done the same.”

Earlier in the day, Yesh Atid MK Vladimir Beliak issued a similar call, saying that Netanyahu “must resign immediately” regardless of whether or not a state commission of inquiry is established to examine the events surrounding October 7.
