Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee
chairman Shaul Mofaz stopped a meeting of the committee Monday afternoon
because he said Prime Minster Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman was
leaking inaccurate information on the proceedings.
earlier, a spokesman from the Prime Minister's Office put out a
statement saying that Mofaz said IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen.
Benny Gantz did not report truthfully about the defense budget and
expenses. Mofaz vehemently denied the statement.
According to Mofaz's spokesman, the committee chairman said that there is a problem with transparency in the budget, and coordination between the prime minister and finance minister in regards to the defense budget.
