Blue and White Chairman MK Benny Gantz has fired adviser Yisrael Bachar after a recording published on Channel 12 revealed the adviser as warning against a Gantz victory in the elections, since Gantz is “a danger to Israel.”

Blue and White said: “[Yisrael] Bachar fell into a planned ambush which included personal exploitation, use of inappropriate means, and fraud – which will be dealt with via the judicial system. The political sources’ manipulative involvement will also be revealed soon.”
