Opposition chair Yair Lapid says Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s call for elections in Israel to replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “proof that one by one [the premier] is losing Israel’s biggest supporters in the US.”

“What’s worse – he’s doing it on purpose,” Lapid says, albeit without any proof.

“Netanyahu is causing significant damage to the national effort to win the war and maintain Israel’s security.”
