Benny Gantz did not report truthfully about the defense budget and expenses. Mofaz vehemently denied the statement.
According to Mofaz's spokesman, the committee chairman said that there is a problem with transparency in the budget, and coordination between the prime minister and finance minister in regards to the defense budget.
