However, he is expected to continue to hold “security consultations” on the war with key officials, including those who had stayed in the now-disbanded war cabinet, according to Ynet.

The war cabinet was set up in the days after October 7, essentially as a way of trying to show national unity.
Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot, the former chief of staff of the Israeli military, joined. One of Gantz’s reasons for being willing to join at the time was to stop the far right from having any influence on the prosecution of the war.
After Gantz and Eiseknov withdrew from the war cabinet, only Netanyahu and the war minister attended the war cabinet.
Netanyahu dissolved the war cabinet, because Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich, those far-right ministers who kept Netanyahu in power, had been agitating to join it.
So far after 255 days, at least 37,337 Gazans have been killed and 85,299 injured in Israel’s genocidal war on Gaza since October 7.
