In a video posted online after Netanyahu’s remarks, Gantz appears to reject his call to avoid early elections.
“The economic terror attack you’re perpetrating against Israeli citizens while an economic, medical and social crisis is raging shows you’ve lost it,” says Gantz.
He accuses Netanyahu of holding up the budget as leverage, amid a corruption trial against him.
“If there was no trial, there would be a budget. If there was no trial, there would be unity,” says Gantz.
