Members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee accused Defense Minister Ehud Barak of preventing the participation of senior IDF officers in a debate scheduled to be held on Sunday.

A scheduled debate on recognition of Palestinian statehood and the "Fayyad Plan" was cancelled when Barak decided not to allow the officers to appear before the committee, MKs alleged.



MK Ze'ev Elkin called Barak's decision "outrageous" and said it infringed on Knesset procedures.
