(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday ordered his top defense aides to brief chief political rival Benny Gantz of the Blue and White party on security developments, an extremely rare move reflecting threats of war on multiple fronts.
The premier’s military secretary Avi Blut and National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat were told to update Gantz, a former IDF chief of staff, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.
The unusual invite by a prime minister to his chief rival to be briefed by his staff members less than a month before national elections prompted widespread speculation over the significance of the move and the seriousness of security threats facing the country.
