Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party issues a strong response to Labor leader Merav Michaeli, who slammed Israel’s designation of six prominent Palestinian rights groups as terror organizations.

“We suggest that Merav Michaeli, who doesn’t know the details, not get in the way of the war on terror,” the party says in a statement, adding to already inflamed tensions within the coalition.
