Ayalon vows to keep working to strengthen Israel
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Tuesday responded to his having been left off of the Yisrael Beytenu Knesset candidate list, saying he would continue to work to advance Israel's interests.
"Today I received from the chairman of Yisrael Beytenu, Avigdor Liberman, the announcement that I would not be on the Yisrael Beytenu list for the next Knesset," Ayalon wrote on his Facebook page.
"In the past four years I was able to serve as Israel's deputy foreign minster during a complicated and challenging time...I will continue to work for the prosperity and strengthening of Israel in the diplomatic, security and economic arenas," Ayalon stated.
He added that he would continue to work hard in his current role until the end of his term.
