Netanyahu’s bloc rages at Bennett for announcing he’s seeking coalition with PM’s rivals

Members of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s right-wing religious bloc lash out at Yamina chief Naftali Bennett for declaring he is seeking to form a government with Yesh Atid chief Yair Lapid and the “change bloc” of anti-Netanyahu parties.

“We said then and it’s been proved today: You vote for Bennett, you get Lapid. The public won’t forget,” MK Miki Zohar, a member of Netanyahu’s Likud party, writes on Twitter.

Far-right Religious Zionism leader tweets: “Bennett’s ability to lie in front of the cameras without blinking is just incredible… It was all coordinated and planned ahead of time… the greatest scam in the history of Israeli politics.”
