Netanyahu rejects Gantz’s demand to release minutes from meetings on pandemic

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejects Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s demand that the so-called coronavirus cabinet and the security cabinet publicize the transcripts of their meetings on the pandemic, following widespread leaks from the discussions.

The transcripts from the meetings are automatically classified for 30 years.

Cabinet Secretary Tzachi Braverman, in a letter to Gantz, dismisses the demand and says he has asked the attorney general to investigate the leaks.
