Hanegbi denies softening Protective Edge report to help PM

Minister without Portfolio Tzachi Hanegbi rejected allegations that he intentionally wrote a report on Operation Protective Edge that cleared the government of blame for any problems, saying Thursday that the prime minister did not know about the document.

Hanegbi wrote the report, which was leaked to Channel 2 News, as Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman. The committee held 87 meetings in the months following Operation Defensive Edge and began working on a highly critical report. After the 2015 election, the meetings were stopped, because Hanegbi said no one in the government was interested in it.
