Meretz MK hits out at Gantz: Don’t exploit Gaza operation for political ends

MK Yair Golan, a member of the outgoing coalition’s left-wing Meretz party, accuses Defense Minister Benny Gantz of making hay out of Israeli operations in Gaza against Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Golan, who served as a top IDF officer when Gantz headed the military between 2011 and 2015, bristles over a video of the defense chief meeting with officials to approve a targeted killing of a senior PIJ commander.

“Let’s keep the IDF out of politics. Let’s prevent the exploitation of operational activities for political needs. Let’s not be Bibi,” Golan tweets in a swipe at both Gantz and former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
