RAMALLAH – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu apologised on Sunday morning for a statement on Saturday night attacking the defence, and especially intelligence, forces, according to The Jerusalem Post.
The tweet was posted after Netanyahu refused to explicitly admit that he bears some responsibility for October 7 when pressed during a press conference. At the conference, the prime minister only said that everyone would have to give the public answers, including him.
Later, he tweeted in a post that put the blame on the defense and intelligence officials before deleting the tweet on Sunday morning shortly before his apology.
After the criticism, Netanyahu tweeted that he was wrong to make the statement and that the defence forces have his full support.
