Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just like the Trump administration, Netanyahu neglected diplomacy and kept Foreign Affairs close to his extended portfolio.

Israeli PM Netanyahu resigns from all ministerial posts over criminal charges | EuroNews - Jan. 2, 2021 |

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has officially resigned from all of his ministerial posts, a requirement of the corruption indictment levied against him.

Netanyahu held four portfolios in addition to being prime minister, health, welfare, agriculture and diaspora affairs. Israeli law does not allow an individual indicted for crimes to hold ministerial office, although it does not prevent them from serving as prime minister.

He has only named one replacement so far, a new minister for health affairs, Jakov Litzman.

On January 1, 2020, Netanyahu was the first Israeli prime minister in history to seek immunity from corruption charges, including bribery, breach of trust and fraud in November. He has denied any wrongdoing.
