Gantz responds to Netanyahu debate challenge: I don’t work for him

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz declined to debate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on live television saying on Wednesday, “I don’t work for him.”

Gantz said that the offer of a debate that Netanyahu made on Tuesday evening was"political spin" and added "I won’t be a part of it.”

Netanyahu responded by saying that Gantz is running scared.

“Gantz is afraid of confrontation and he knows why,” Netanyahu said, “Israel needs a strong leader, not a coward.”
