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.”

“In regards to this issue, I expect full cooperation from all the ministers,” stressed the Prime Minister. “Ministers are appointed in order to prevent crises and solve problems, not create them.”  

Yesterday, JOL reported that Likud sources estimated that Katz will be dismissed in light of the crisis.
