Lapid rebuffs Netanyahu’s claims of promise to inform US of Iran actions

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid is denying that he committed to inform the US of any action Israel will take against Iran ahead of time, after opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that he had made such an agreement, thereby endangering Israel.

“The first part of the sentence is not true and the second part will not happen,” Lapid says in a statement, disputing both Netanyahu’s claim about an agreement with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and the Likud head’s vow that he’ll replace the current government.

“I thank the opposition leader for his suggestions. We’ll take it from here,” Lapid says.
