Netanyahu, Gallant to make statements tonight; Gallant said set to urge halt to overhaul
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant both announce they will make statements tonight.
Netanyahu will speak at 8 p.m from the prime minister’s office.
The announcement comes minutes after Gallant said he would be making a statement.
Channel 12 reports that Gallant is expected to call for an immediate halt to legislation on the judicial overhaul that has sparked widespread demonstrations against the government.
Earlier, Ynet reported that Gallant has been warning Netanyahu that the overhaul was seriously undermining the IDF and Israel’s military deterrence, along with ties to key allies, including the US.
