Opposition chairman Yair Lapid tears into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the premier’s primetime address.

“It is not unacceptable for the prime minister of Israel to send an entire country into a whirlwind of panic while waiting for his statement on Friday night during a time of emergency and then not say anything new either about the families of the abductees, not about the northern front, not about evacuation,” Lapid tweets.

“Such statements must not made by a prime minister unless he has new information to bring to his people and the country,” he adds.
