Former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon defended himself after Education Minister Naftali Bennett said the revelations in the State Comptroller's report regarding the 2014 Gaza incursion were an "earthquake."

Ya'alon told the audience at the INSS conference that "we did not run the 2014 war based on populism and surveys like some politicians (Bennett), we acted responsibly."

Adding that "this morning politicians crossed red lines in selectively leaking classified 2014 Gaza war cabinet talks before the report was published."

Ha said that in its entirety the war was a success. "We stopped the Hamas threat , blew up the  tunnels, achieved our goals and a ceasefire on our terms. Since then the South has been quiet with no rockets."
