Senior coalition members lash out at National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir after his party boycotted Knesset votes again.

Quotes sent to Hebrew media, and attributed to unnamed senior coalition members, say that “Itamar Ben Gvir cares more about media coverage than maintaining the right-wing government and the integrity of the coalition.”

“In the government, problems are solved together, and contrary to his spin,  he is not the only one who cares about the Negev and the Galilee,” they say.

“Maybe it’s really better that they bring down the government, we go to the elections, and the public kicks out those responsible for overthrowing the right-wing government.”

“The rise of a left-wing government will be on his head,” they say.
