Death Blow? Home Front Minister Hands in Resignation


Home Front Minister Gilad Erdan sent a letter of resignation from his post as minister to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, in which he also recommended that the Home Front Ministry be closed due to a lack of authority.

Erdan asked to be relieved of his position by the end of May, potentially drawing to a close the struggle with the Defense Ministry for authority that led Maj.-Gen. (res.) Dan Ronen, Director of the Home Front Ministry, to hand in his resignation earlier on Tuesday.
