Rivlin Trusts PM Netanyahu 100%


President-elect Reuven Rivlin related on Wednesday to the firing of Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon and to the criticism heard within the government regarding its conduct during Operation Protective Shield. “We have a government and a Cabinet. There can be criticism and there can be disagreements. I support the government, the security forces, the Defense Minister and the Prime Minister, 100 percent.”

Rivlin added, “The citizens of Israel do not always know of all of the considerations weighed prior to taking any given action.”
