Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired Defense Minister Yoav Galant this evening, Netanyahu's office announced.

The move was made after Gallant publicly called last night to stop the legislation as part of the legal revolution.

So far, Netanyahu has not responded with his voice to Gallant's statement, who responded to his dismissal on Twitter, and wrote: "The security of the State of Israel has always been and will always remain my life's mission."

Following the move, spontaneous demonstrations broke out in front of the Kirya in Tel Aviv and in front of the Prime Minister's House in Jerusalem.

According to sources in the Prime Minister's office, Netanyahu summoned Gallant to his office and told him that he had lost trust in him after he acted against the government and against the coalition while he was on a diplomatic visit abroad over the weekend. Minister Gallant did not coordinate his words with the Prime Minister in advance, thus sabotaging the efforts reach a solution.

Those around the Prime Minister claim that the main reason for the move is "a weak and weak response on the part of Gallant against the refusals in the IDF, something that has no place".
