Israeli media revealed that a guard in the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked to search Army Chief of Staff Herzi Halevy as he entered the office in search of a recording device.

Israeli Channel 13 said that the Prime Minister's guard requested to search the Chief of Staff's bag in search of a recording device when he entered the war council.

The Israeli channel added, "The Israeli Army Chief of Staff got angry and went inside the room to those present and expressed his dissatisfaction with the matter."

Officials in Netanyahu's office said that the security guard had not received any instructions and that they were not handling security procedures.

In turn, former Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman commented on the incident and considered that the inspection of the army chief of staff was “a humiliation for all Israeli army soldiers.”

However, last Saturday, Israel's Defense Minister Yoav Galat refused to hold a joint press conference with Netanyahu in Tel Aviv.

Signs of disagreement between the ministers of the Israeli War Council, which was formed at the beginning of the war on the Gaza Strip, appeared during the first weeks of the war.
