Netanyahu fires defense minister

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (pictured) on Sunday fired the nation's defense minister Yoav Gallant, amid a controversy over the planned overhaul of Israel's judiciary.

Gallant, a senior member of his Likud party and a former army general, was relieved of his post just one day after he called for a halt to the planned legislative process.

The reforms face heavy criticism, with thousands protesting in Tel Aviv against the controversial move.
