Zionist Union leader Avi Gabbay called for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign after police Thursday recommended indicting David Shimron and former commander of the Israel Navy Eliezer Marom, as well as four others, over Case 3000, also known as the Submarines Affair. Israel media reported.
"Stealing money from the defense establishment is a betrayal of IDF soldiers," Gabbay said. "With this money we could have bought armored personnel carriers instead of the old ones that our soldiers were forced to use during the last Gaza war four years ago."
"If the prime minister knew what his associated were involved in, he should resign," he added. "If he didn't know, he should resign because he is not fit to lead the defense establishment."
