Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's Chief of Staff has resigned, in the second resignation in Bennett's inner circle in just two weeks, Anadolu News Agency reports.

A statement by Bennett's office did not provide a reason for the resignation of Tal Gan-Zvi.

Gan-Zvi was a close aide to Bennett for over 10 years, and was considered a right-wing flank in his government, who pushed for its right-wing agenda.

According to The Jerusalem Post newspaper, Gan-Zvi is expected to go into the business world.

Earlier this month, Bennett's diplomatic adviser, Shimrit Meir, resigned, in a sign of growing problems facing Bennett's government.
