Former IDF chief of staff Dan Halutz slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that "there is no such secret that the minister of defense and the IDF chief of staff cannot know," reported the Jerusalem Post sister publication Maariv on Saturday.

During a cultural event in the southern city of Beersheba, Halutz claimed that "Netanyahu was inventing when [he spoke of] a secret non may know."
Halutz, who served under former prime minister Ehud Olmert, said that unless "anti-democratic legislation will be passed" Netanyahu is likely to end up "in a jail cell."
