Netanyahu speaks to Ya'alon over rift with US
A source within Defense Minister's Office said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon regarding a public rift between him and the White House.


An American official reportedly called Ya'alon a "hard nut to crack" and an "extremist" who was "underling" US-Israel relations after Ya'alon slammed the US for being "weak on Iran."


According to the source, Ya'alon is expected to smooth things over with the Americans. (Attila Somfalvi)
