A leading national-religious rabbi calls on Yamina leader Naftali Bennett not to form a unity government with parties opposed to Prime Minister Netanyahu, hours before the premier’s mandate to form a government expires.

“I really appreciate and admire Naftali Bennett. He needs to say unequivocally, ‘I won’t form a left-wing government’ that will destroy a lot,” Rabbi Chaim Druckman tells Channel 12 news.

Netanyahu, who has been pressuring Bennett not to form a government with his rivals, shares a clip of the video on his Twitter account.

“Naftali, [Yamina No. 2 Ayelet] Shaked, listen to Rabbi Druckman,” Netanyahu tweets.
