In the video: Gallant called for the legislation to be stopped: "There is an immediate danger to the security of the state" (Photo: Ministry of Defense spokespersons)
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu fired Defense Minister Yoav Galant from his post this evening (Sunday), but the political earthquake was broadcast with a delay of several minutes on Channel 12's broadcast. While News 11 was broadcasting here immediately and News 13 was broadcast with a delay of one to two minutes, News 12 was in the middle of a long 16-minute magazine article by Omri Maniv about the Air Force pilots who oppose the legal revolution - at the time of the announcement of Gallant's dismissal.
In light of this, they joined the drama considerably late.
"Someone wake up Channel 12. A real alarm," wrote one user on Twitter.
Another surfer added: "How strange News 12. Bibi fires Galant and they are still in the news."

As mentioned, Netanyahu fired Gallant from his position this evening.
The move was made after Gallant publicly called last night to stop the legislation as part of the legal revolution.
Netanyahu has not responded with his voice so far to Gallant's statement.
In his first public statement last night, Gallant expressed his opposition to the continuation of the legislation, saying that "a change is needed in the judicial system - the fabric of relations between the authorities requires correction, and yet, significant and national changes are being made in negotiations and discourse."
He called for dialogue between the camps and warned of the wave of refusals to serve in the reserves.
"I said this in closed conversations in recent weeks, at this time we must stop the process in order to sit down and talk. Now I say it out loud, for the sake of Israel's security - we need to stop the legislative process at this time, allow the people of Israel to celebrate Passover, Independence Day and mourn together on Memorial Day . To stop the demonstrations immediately and to stop any forms of refusal. For our security, this is our duty."
