Israel's consul-general in New York said he was resigning on Sunday in protest at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's firing of Defence Minister Yoav Gallant in a surging dispute over a judicial overhaul sought by the government.
"I can no longer continue representing this Government," Asaf Zamir said on Twitter. "I believe it is my duty to ensure that Israel remains a beacon of democracy and freedom in the world." (Writing by Dan Williams)
