TEL AVIV (Reuters) - The centrist party of Israeli election challenger Benny Gantz rejected on Thursday an offer by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to join forces in a governing coalition under the incumbent.

“We will not enter a coalition led by Netanyahu,” senior Blue and White leader Moshe Yaalon told reporters at an event attended by Gantz.
