Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking to pass a law that would make it illegal for censorship to approve leaked conversations from cabinet meetings. The leaked conversations have caused outrage among the government during the war, leading to clashes between ministers. In one case, Minister Gadi Eisenkot clashed with far-right ministers National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich. Another conversation focused on giving fuel to Gaza as humanitarian aid, which most of the ministers objected to.
The decision to pass this law comes after multiple leaks, causing tension within the government. Netanyahu wants to prevent the publication of such conversations in the future.
