“Israeli” war cabinet minister Benny Gantz is scheduled to make an announcement at 8:00 PM, with expectations that he will resign from government, Hebrew media reported on Sunday.

This comes after Israeli Occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged Gantz on Saturday to stay in the government, posting on his X account, "I call on Benny Gantz -- do not leave the emergency government. Don't give up on unity."
