Yamina MK Amichai Chikli — who voted against extending the Palestinian family reunification law early this morning — slams Prime Minister Naftali Bennett amid a growing rift within the party.

After Bennett called Chikli “confused” this morning, the MK hits back: “Dear Naftali, you’ve gotten lost in your navigation,” he tweets. “It is not too late to recalculate a new route and work to establish a [right-wing] government just as you promised.”

Sources in the party are weighing officially designating Chikli as a deserter from the party, which would come with sanctions.
