Benny Gantz will propose plans for 7 October investigation

Benny Gantz wants to establish a commission of inquiry to investigate how Hamas’s 7 October attack took Israel by surprise.

“We must learn the lessons and act so that it never happens again,” Gantz said on X.

“In order for us to do this, the time has come to establish a state commission of inquiry. I intend to soon submit a proposal for a resolution to establish it". 

Gantz’s move is his latest to put pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Gantz, who is one of three members of Israel’s war cabinet, said he will withdraw from government if a post-war plan for Gaza is not presented by 8 June.
