Danon: It’s Not Personal, I Represent Much of the Public

Danny Danon, Israel’s former Deputy Minister of Defense, responded on Wednesday to the announcement hat he was fired by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

Danon said, “I said that the ceasefire agreement was embarrassing, and to my dismay I was right. My position is not personal; I represent much of the public, who oppose a lack of response to the abduction of the three boys, and to backtracking during this operation. The approach has to change, and I hope that it will.”
