National Security Adviser Eyal Hulata is set to resign as Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to swear in a new government in the coming weeks, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

According to Kan, Hulata announced that he will not continue in his position, and will resign once the current and outgoing government formally ends.

There has not yet been a public announcement by Hulata or by the Prime Minister’s Office regarding his resignation.

Kan lists two possible replacements for Hulata: former Israeli ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, who is considered close to Netanyahu; and Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir, a twice rejected candidate for chief of the Israeli military, and Netanyahu’s military secretary when he was prime minister.
