PM, Ya’alon say IDF officers free to express opinion in relevant forums
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon issued a joint statement on Monday following their meeting in the morning. It said "there is no disagreement, and there never was one, that the military is subordinate to the political leadership and that officers are free to express their views in relevant forums." The statement also said that Netanyahu and Ya'alon "had resolved the matter."
DEBKAfile: The position in the statement was different from the one expressed by Ya'alon at the Defense Ministry just one day earlier.
