Israeli tourism minister has resigned from his post citing a lack of trust in Benjamin Netanyahu.
Aszf Zamir, a member of the Blue and White party led by Benny Gantz, made his intention known on Friday October 2, 2020.
“This morning I called Benny Gantz and informed him of my resignation from my position as a minister in the government,” he said
“I can no longer continue in a government in whose leader I do not have the slightest confidence,” Zamir added
He further stated that, “Having been part of this government for over four months, I, unfortunately, can state that the coronavirus crisis, with all its consequences, comes, at best, second on the prime minister’s list of priorities.”
The minister’s resignation is another blow to Netanyahu, who is already facing corruption charges in cases that include bribery, breach of trust, and fraud.
