  • Benny Gantz resigned from Israel’s war cabinet, urging Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to hold elections.
  • Gantz criticized Netanyahu for lacking a clear long-term strategy for Israel after the Gaza war and accused him of hesitating on making important decisions due to political considerations.
  • The resignation followed an ultimatum given three weeks prior by Gantz to Netanyahu, demanding a plan for the day after the Gaza conflict ends.
  • Gantz, a former general and head of the army, alongside his political ally Isaac CT, also a former general, expressed concerns over Netanyahu’s leadership and the impact of political motives on strategic decisions.
  • The move by Gantz aims to initiate a process that could potentially lead to the collapse of Netanyahu’s government and trigger elections. Polls suggest Gantz could become Prime Minister if elections were held.
  • Netanyahu’s reliance on ultra-nationalist and far-right elements within his coalition, who favor continuing the conflict in Gaza and settling Jewish settlers in the area, might be strengthened by Gantz’s departure.
