Benjamin Netanyahu caused serious upset in his war cabinetBenjamina Netanyahu was forced to apologize after sparking "a lot of anger" in his war cabinet when he blamed the country’s security services for failing to anticipate Hamas’s October 7 attack. The Prime Minister, who has since said he was wrong, wrote on social media claiming that they did not adequately alert him to an imminent Hamas attack, but instead reassured him that the group was "deterred."
