Report: Israel’s Netanyahu and Gantz Tried to Order Military Operation Without Cabinet Approval

According to a report from Israeli TV, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz tried to order a military operation without consulting Israel’s security cabinet.

Under Israeli law, Netanyahu and Gantz can order military operations but must gain the approval of the security cabinet if the mission could spark a war. The report from Israel’s Kan public broadcaster said Netanyahu sought to bypass the cabinet but ultimately decided to consult with some ministers due to the complexity of the mission, and the operation was approved and carried out.

The report offered no details of what the military operation consisted of and only said it was approved to “send a message to the other side.” In recent weeks, Israel has bombed Syria and Gaza and has carried covert attacks against Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility and Iranian ships in the region.
