Prime Minister Netanyahu slammed Yisrael Beteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman for preventing the formation of a right-wing government.
“Lieberman brought down the national camp,” Netanyahu said in a press conference to address the new elections Thursday night. “He says that he brought down a right-wing government over the draft law.

“Suddenly Lieberman is against the charedim. Which Lieberman, our Lieberman? For 20 years he has been making deals with the charedim,” the prime minister said.
