Israel's Defense Minister blames Netanyahu for his resignation

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz announced his resignation from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's emergency government on Sunday, withdrawing the only centrist force from the far-right coalition amidst the ongoing war in Gaza.

In a press conference, Gantz stated, "I am leaving the emergency government today with a heavy heart," and added that he will return to the opposition while continuing to support responsible decisions.

Gantz explained, "We are withdrawing from this government because Netanyahu is preventing us from progressing towards a real victory."

He emphasized his commitment to Israel's interests over Netanyahu's personal agenda, stating, "I am aligned with Israel's interest, not Netanyahu's personal interest. My door will remain open to any Zionist party ready to help achieve victory over our enemies and ensure the safety of our citizens."
