Alternate Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benny Gantz appeared to push for postponing the implementation of US President Donald Trump's Middle East peace plan on Monday at a meeting of the Blue and White faction in the Knesset. "Together we will defeat the coronavirus and deal with its economic and medical impact," he said. "What is not connected to coronavirus will wait." Gantz said the Defense Ministry that he heads was preparing to double the amount of coronavirus hotels. "We are in the middle of a continuing incident and the only body that can deal with it alongside the security cabinet and Health Ministry is the Defense Ministry," he said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a closed discussion of the Likud party that Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz's Blue and White party have no say regarding annexation."We are in talks with an American team here in Israel. We are doing so discreetly," Netanyahu said. "The matter doesn't depend on Blue and White. They are not a factor, they're neither here nor there."
