Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met Tuesday at the Prime Minister's Office to settle their differences over last week's "Outpost Bill."

Netanyahu told Elkin he thought the MK crossed the line in criticizing him personally during his struggle for the bill. Elkin apologized and said he did not intend to harm the prime minister.

"During the emotional dispute on the bill, I said things I should not have Elkin said. "People can have differences of opinion on policy but they cannot be allowed to get personal. If my words were perceived that way, it was unintentional."
