Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has fired Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, his office says.
In a brief statement, the Prime Minister’s Office says Netanyahu has decided to transfer Gallant from his post.
It is unclear what new position he will be given, if any.
Yesterday, Gallant called to pause the judicial overhaul, citing danger to state security, given widespread protests in the military.
