PM on IDF-Shin Bet dispute: Security of Israeli citizens more important than any controversy

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday appeared to try to appease tensions between the IDF and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) after the military criticize the domestic intelligence agency over the summer conflict in Gaza.
The premier praised both the IDF and the Shin Bent and vowed that they would continue their joint conduct, "because the security of Israel's citizens is always placed above any controversy."
"The cooperation between them is the basic element of our national security and this cooperation has yielded significant results in the combat field during Operation Protective Edge," Netanyahu said during a tour of the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) near Ben-Gurion Airport.
