Ministers said to dismiss PM’s sanction on minister as meaningless

Government ministers are reportedly saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s suspension of Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu from cabinet meetings — after the latter said nuking Gaza is an option — is meaningless.

“This is a joke, there barely are any cabinet meetings anyway, and most of the work is being done in rounds of votes by phone,” an unnamed minister is quoted as saying by the Ynet news site.

A cabinet meeting scheduled for today has been canceled, with no alternative date set.
