Rebel Yamina MKs Amichai Chikli — who was ousted from the party — and Idit Silman, as well as ex-MK Yomtob Kalfon, who was replaced in the Knesset last week, take part in a tour of the demolished West Bank outpost Homesh.

Kalfon, who has promised that he had no intention of deserting his party or the coalition, tweets that it is “important to strengthen Homesh and the settlements in northern Samaria.”

Opposition MK Bezalel Smotrich of the Religious Zionism party tweets that “this left-wing government has lost its majority among the nation and in the Knesset and it has no legitimacy to limit settlement steps in the area, and certainly not to evacuate Homesh.”
