Former Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman lambasted Prime Minister Netanyahu for blaming Thursday’s violent Amona demolition on his military secretary IDF Brigadier-General Avi Blut.’
Blut will be summoned on Friday to meet with Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot after he did not pass on Netanyahu’s instructions not to vacate the buildings in Amona. The military secretary passed the prime minister’s instructions only in the morning when the violent evacuation had already begun, culminating in 23 policemen and three residents getting injured.
“The prime minister’s shameful attempt to put the blame on the evacuation of Amona to his military secretary, Brigadier-General Avi Blut, is at the least despicable, and it is impossible to avoid seeing this as an evasion of responsibility and a desperate attempt to search for a scapegoat,” wrote Liberman on Facebook.
