Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t even sit down upon walking into his transitional meeting with his replacement Naftali Bennett, according to Channel 12.

The network says the meeting was very brief, not particularly cordial and only focused on the issue of Iran.

Channel 12 notes that when former prime minister Shimon Peres was replaced by Netanyahu in 1996, the former spent two weeks meeting every day with the latter to ensure he had all the information necessary for the new job.
