Following this decision, the president is expected to hold consultations on the Gaza war with a group of ministers, including Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer, who had been part of the war cabinet.

The measure was announced while US special envoy Amos Hochstein visited Jerusalemtrying to calm the situation on the disputed border with Lebanon, where Israel said clashes with the militia Hezbollah, backed by Iran, they were pushing the region into a broader conflict.

In addition, the Israeli army announced on Monday that it had killed a senior operative in one of the rocket and missile sections of Hezbollah in the Selaa area, southern Lebanon. In turn, he assured that operations in southern and central Gaza against Hamas fighters continued.

Netanyahu had faced demands from his coalition’s nationalist-religious partners, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich and National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, to be included in the war cabineta measure that would have aggravated tension with international partners, including the United States.

The war cabinet was formed after Gantz joined Netanyahu in a national unity government at the start of the war in October, and also included as observers Gantz’s partner Gadi Eisenkot and Aryeh Deri, head of the religious party. Shas.
