Benny Gantz Resigns from Netanyahu’s Government, Criticizing Gaza Conflict Management

Benny Gantz, a key member of Israel’s war cabinet, resigned from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government. Gantz criticized Netanyahu for blocking progress in the Gaza conflict and said his decision was difficult but necessary. He accused Netanyahu of prioritizing personal politics over making important decisions for Gaza.

Gantz had demanded that Netanyahu present a new plan for the war by June 8. After Israeli forces rescued four hostages in Gaza, killing over 270 Palestinians, Gantz delayed his resignation but eventually went through with it. Despite Netanyahu urging him to stay for the sake of unity, Gantz insisted on the need for an election to prevent national division.

Gantz’s resignation doesn’t immediately weaken Netanyahu’s government, which still holds a majority in parliament. However, it leaves the war cabinet with only members from Netanyahu’s party, Likud. Defense Minister Yoav Gallant remains in the cabinet, while National Security Minister Ben Gvir wants to join it.

Internationally, Netanyahu is under pressure from Western allies and hostage families to end the war and secure the hostages’ release. Despite eight months of fighting, Israel has not achieved its main goals, like eliminating Hamas leaders and freeing the hostages. The U.S. has repeatedly asked Netanyahu to outline a post-war plan for Gaza.

Gantz, who often surpasses Netanyahu in popularity, has called for a detailed plan to defeat Hamas, return the hostages, establish a new government in Gaza, and normalize relations with Saudi Arabia. His resignation highlights his effort to distance himself from Netanyahu and maintain his political influence.

The war cabinet, set up to handle the Gaza conflict, will now operate without Gantz. He joined to balance the far-right elements in the government. Analysts believe that staying in the government longer could harm Gantz’s popularity, as he risks being seen as too aligned with Netanyahu. His resignation is a strategic move to keep his political support strong amid ongoing conflict and challenges.
