Israeli Premier Netanyahu dissolves War Cabinet

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dissolved the War Cabinet that was formed on Oct. 11, 2023 after Israel launched a war on Gaza, state media reported on Monday.

According to public broadcaster KAN, far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir had made a forceful request to join the Cabinet.

The move came after opposition leader Benny Gantz quit the emergency government earlier this month following disagreements over a post-war strategy on the Gaza Strip.

It originally included Netanyahu, Gantz, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, Ron Dermer, Gadi Eizenkot, and Shas party leader Aryeh Deri.
