Likud says Gantz walked back on agreements, elections to be called

Blue and White is walking back all the agreements it reached with Likud, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s party says, signaling elections will imminently be called.

“Due to an internal fight in Blue and White, Gantz has retracted all the agreements reached in negotiations between Blue and White and Likud,” the party says.

“It’s unfortunate that Gantz has decided to drag the country to unnecessary elections at the height of the coronavirus crisis,” the party says.

Channel 12 reports that Israel is heading to elections, saying Gantz has walked back on his compromise deal with Netanyahu.
