Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Wednesday said he was considering closing the army radio station that has become too political in his view.
Speaking in the Knesset Gantz said his earlier efforts to close down the station were stopped by the Attorney General because of the proximity to elections but that he believed IDF soldiers should not be kept far removed from politics and that the stations has long been removed from its public role.
The Defense Minister said he hoped to review the matter once a new government is sworn in.
