Senior level Likud officials told Channel 2 News today (Sunday) that they thwarted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intentions to dismiss Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz.

According to the Likud officials: “The MKs made it clear to Prime Minister Netanyahu that they would back Katz and the dismissal crisis came to an end.”

Earlier today, JOL reported that after the heated debate between Netanyahu and Katz regarding the construction work crisis on Shabbat, the Prime Minister rebuked the Transportation Minister, who was sitting next to him, during the weekly government meeting without actually calling him out by name. In the beginning of the meeting, Netanyahu said: “This crisis was completely unnecessary. There was no need for this situation. When construction work needs to be done on Shabbat, it’s done. When it doesn’t, it’s not.”
