Channel 12 releases a copy of the letter Yamina’s Idit Silman sent to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, announcing her resignation from the coalition.

“I call on you and the rest of my friends: it’s time to face the truth,” Silman writes.

“We tried, but it’s time to recalculate the route and try to form a Jewish and Zionist government,” she says. “Let’s join hands and express the values for which we were elected.”

“I am attentive to the sincere protest of the electorate whose support we won and whose votes elected us, as well as the pain of those who did not vote for us but belong to the national camp,” Silman writes. “I am terminating my membership in the coalition.”
