CAIRO – 17 June 2024: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dissolved on Monday the war cabinet and directed the forming of a new one.

The war cabinet included Gantz and fellow National Unity Minister Gadi Eisenkot, as well as Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer.

Israeli Media cited security official saying, that they would not allow Itamar Ben Gvir, the Israeli Minister of National Security, to join the new sensitive consultation council, because he ‘poses a threat to Israel’s security’.

The official stressed that it is impossible to agree on Ben Gvir’s joining the limited government because He is ‘irresponsible and leaks details of the discussions to other parties’

The Israeli army announced Sunday starting a tactical truce as military activities will be suspended daily from 8:00 until 19:00 in the southern section of Gaza Strip along Philadelphi Corridor - stretching between Karam Abou Salem Border Crossing with Egypt and the North – in order to allow the entry of humanitarian aid.

On the other hand, Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir stated that the Cabinet had not been consulted about the tactical truce and that it contradicted its decisions. He also described the maker of the truce decision as "evil or stupid that should not be in office" as it comes in tandem with happenings of human losses among soldiers.

Palestinian Ministry of Health has announced a rise in the death toll from Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, reaching 37,337 martyrs and 85,299 injured since October 7th.
