Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unexpectedly cut short a security cabinet meeting on Wednesday morning, telling ministers that information from the first part of the meeting, held the day before, was leaked.
"A short while after the meeting yesterday something serious happened," Netanyahu said. "A leak from the cabinet discussions… someone severely damaged the trust that Israel's citizens have in this forum." Netanyahu added that the person responsible for the leak "broke the basic rules of holding discussions in the security cabinet. He also hurt the good name of those who attended the meeting and did not leak information."
