After just a month and a half on the job, Israel Police spokesman Hillel Partuk has left his post.
The reason for his departure was not immediately clear, but it is believed Partuk had fallen into disagreement with police commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yochanan Danino.
Partuk "submitted his resignation to the police commissioner. He gave personal reasons for his resignation," an official statement said. "The police commissioner accepted the resignation, thanked Partuk for his work, and wished him success," it added.
"In the coming days, a spokesman for the Israel Police will be appointed, who will continue to oversee changes in the spokesman department," the statement said.
