Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dissolved his six-member war cabinet, less than a week after centrist opposition leader Benny Gantz and his ally Gadi Eisenkot resigned.

The sensitive issues about the war with Hamas in Gaza will now be discussed in a smaller forum, media reports said. A spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that, as far as it was concerned, it would not affect the chain of command.

Mr. Gantz and Mr. Eisenkot quit over the prime minister’s leadership, including the lack of a plan for post-conflict Gaza. The two former military chiefs had joined a national unity government with Mr. Netanyahu’s right-wing coalition days after the start of the war in October.

The Israeli military launched a campaign in Gaza to destroy Hamas in response to an unprecedented attack on southern Israel on October 7, during which about 1,200 people were killed and 251 others were taken hostage.
