Deep in talks to once again run on a joint electoral slate, MKs Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben-Gvir trade public accusations.

Speaking at a Channel 13 news conference, Smotrich, the head of the Religious Zionism party, accuses Ben-Gvir of issuing ultimatums and threats.

Oztma Yehudit, the faction headed by Ben-Gvir, retorts that he has not issued any ultimatums, and says it is “saddened that Smotrich is attacking Ben-Gvir in the media.”
