The dismissal of Defense Minister Yoav Galant led to an American response.
The spokeswoman for the National Security Council told Wala!
Because the American administration is concerned about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to fire the Minister of Defense.
"We are very concerned about the developments in Israel and their possible impact on the readiness of the IDF, as Defense Minister Yoav Galant warned.
The resulting situation further emphasizes the urgent need to reach a compromise," the spokeswoman said.
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."
Netanyahu summoned Gallant to his office and told him that he had lost confidence 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, thereby sabotaging efforts to 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".

It was also reported by Likud officials that Justice Minister Yariv Levin and Prime Minister Yair Netanyahu's son were the ones who pressured Netanyahu to fire Galant, and convinced him that he was undermining him and that he should show strength.
There were those around Netanyahu who recommended not to fire him, but Yair and Yariv pressed from the first moment and in the end they decided.
The decision to fire Gallant brought crowds to the streets.
Thousands came to Kaplan Street in Tel Aviv, who also descended on Ayalon lanes and blocked the lanes in both directions.
Thousands also came to Jerusalem, who lined up outside the Prime Minister's house on Gaza Street.
