Shas party leader Aryeh Deri pans Opposition Leader Yair Lapid who called for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be replaced by a different Likud lawmaker so that a broader unity government could be formed in order to guide the country through the war.
“Anyone who engages in politics or makes political considerations causes a great injustice to the people of Israel and harms our soldiers,” Deri says in remarks to the press before a faction meeting.
“Enough, leave politics to the side. We are not changing prime ministers. I call on Lapid and [Yisrael Beytenu chair Avigdor] Liberman to enter the government,” he adds.
