The chairman of Otzma Yehudit and the designated minister of national security MK Itamar Ben Gvir commented on the words of Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi who attacked him and the politicians on the right who criticized the IDF regarding the conduct against the Givati fighters in Hebron and the lack of backups against the far left activists.
MK Ben Gvir: “I respect the Chief of Staff very much, but Naa demands Naa fulfills. I would expect from the Chief of Staff that just as he demanded a soldier not to speak politically, so he himself would refrain from political statements.
No wonder that when the defense minister is not functioning and there is no one to set the policy, a leadership vacuum is created. I will emphasize: I have no intention of interfering with the punishment, but the policy will have to change.” (Photo: Archive)
