Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich claimed on Monday that Minister Benny Gantz, presently in Washington, is aiding the United States in advancing its agenda to establish a Palestinian state.

Smotrich, the chair of the Religious Zionism party, claimed during a faction meeting in the Knesset that the U.S. seeks to create divisions among Israelis to further its plans, with Gantz’s collaboration.

By engaging in discussions with senior U.S. officials during his Washington visit, Gantz has reportedly angered Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who did not authorize the trip.

Gantz is scheduled to meet with Vice President Kamala Harris, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and members of both Republican and Democratic factions in the U.S. Congress.
