Netanyahu’s office bashes Meretz head as poorly sourced

A spokesperson for the prime minister is lashing out at Meretz leader Nitzan Horowitz for claiming that he had heard that Israel’s deals with the UAE and Bahrain include a commitment to put a moratorium on settlement building.

“Horowitz’s sources as a politician are even worse than those he had as a journalist,” says the spokesperson, who does not stand behind the statement enough to have their actual name used and so asks journalists to identify them as a “source in the entourage” of Netanyahu.

Horowitz is an award-winning journalist who worked from the 1980s to 2008 as a reporter and editor for several Israeli outlets.
