Attorney General Gali Baharav Miara has retracted her agreement to vote on the change to the rules of engagement, a change that National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir planned to put to a vote. Miara's retraction comes after Minister Benny Gantz pressured not to vote on the changes.

Ben-Gvir intended to put the changes to a vote on Monday after an agreement was reached between him and the Attorney General.

According to the proposal that the Attorney General originally agreed on, during multi-front incidents in which roads are blocked for military convoys or in a case of a siege on a civilian town and the prevention of medical attention for its residents, the rules of engagement would be loosened so the district police commander allow officers to shoot at the legs.

The Attorney General agreed to the abovementioned changes last Thursday, but in recent days, there has been pressure from left-wing organizations that attacked Ben-Gvir for loosening the rules.

Yesterday, the Government Secretariat updated Minister Ben-Gvir that Minister Benny Gantz opposed the proposal and shot it down for now. In addition, the Attorney General rescinded her agreement, and therefore, the Prime Minister decided that the proposal would not be put forth for a vote.

Sources close to Minister Ben-Gvir stated, "The conception group rules through the war cabinet and shoots down any substantial change. What deters another Guardian of the Walls (Israeli Arab uprising) is the determination of the Israel Police Force, which deals with any sign of Arab incitement with a strong hand. In the case of an all-front war, we need to give the police tools to deal with the most extreme scenarios."
