Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responds to Benny Gantz’s blistering attack against him.
“Benny Gantz, shame on you,” he says in a statement. “As a soldier and officer in [elite unit] Sayeret Matkal, I risked my life time after time for the country. I was wounded in battle with terrorists. I almost lost my life in a shootout in the Suez Canal for the security of the state you want to endanger with unilateral withdrawals and support for the dangerous Iran nuclear deal.
The citizens of Israel will choose between a strong right-wing government headed by me and a weak left-wing government headed by you.”
