Despite threats, Israel security chiefs face off publicly

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks during a press conference in Jerusalem on November 7, 2014Israel’s security services have earned a rare rebuke from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after engaging in a public quarrel as confrontation with the Palestinians threatened to escalate. Details of the spat were plastered across Israel’s main newspapers Thursday after Netanyahu’s office issued a statement urging chief of staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz and Yoram Cohen, the head of the Shin Bet internal security service, to stop washing their dirty laundry in public. At a meeting with the pair on Wednesday, Netanyahu “ordered an immediate halt to publicly dealing with issues that should be resolved between the security services,” a statement from his office said. “We all have a national responsibility for the security of the State of Israel and we must continue to fully cooperate for the security of Israel’s citizens,” he told them at the meeting, which was also attended by Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon.
