Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu disbands the war cabinet as tensions rise over Lebanon

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dissolved the six-member War Cabinet, an Israeli official said on Monday, in a widely expected move following the departure of centrist retired Gen. Benny Gantz from the government.

Netanyahu is now expected to consult on the Gaza war with a small group of ministers, including Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer, who had served in the war cabinet.

The move was announced as US special envoy Amos Hochstein visited Jerusalem in an attempt to calm the situation on the disputed border with Lebanon, where Israel said tensions with the Iran-backed Hezbollah militia were pushing the region close to a wider conflict .
