Environment minister resigns in protest of Liberman's entry into coalition

Avi Gabbay, the minister of environmental protection, announced on Friday that he will resign from the government.
The minister informed his party leader, Moshe Kahlon of Kulanu, of his decision.
Gabbay said that his decision to quit stemmed from his dissatisfaction with the recently consummated agreement between Likud and Yisrael Beytenu, elevating Avigdor Liberman to the position of defense minister in place of Moshe Ya'alon.
"The recent political moves are something that I just can't be a part of," Gabbay said on Friday.
