Gantz takes credit for the Meron investigation and promises to keep digging


From Japan, Defense Minister Benny Gantz hails his demand that a state commission of inquiry be set up to investigate the Meron disaster, after the group released its initial findings blaming its former partner Benjamin Netanyahu and others of being responsible for the fatal crash. .

“We’re not looking for blame – we’re looking for accountability and lessons. That’s why I’ve asked a state committee to investigate the Meron disaster,” he tweets, above a screenshot of a list of apparent demands during the talks. of the coalition last year.

The formation of a state commission of inquiry has been widely supported by mainstream politicians, though opposed by many lawmakers in the ultra-Orthodox community.

“We’re going to keep going and digging into the open wound to make sure the lessons are fully implemented,” Gantz said.

Gantz, one of the few current ministers who were also in government when the disaster struck, is seeking re-election with the National Unity Party.
