Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid on Tuesday attacked the government decision to approve construction of 1,500 new units in Ramat Shlomo.
In an interview with "Good Morning Israel" with Michael Friedman on Army Radio, Lapid said the government continues to jeopardize its relationship with the US by building in Jerusalem, adding that it is "endangering our relations with the US for the most basic of electoral considerations."
Likud responded to the Yesh Atid party leader, commenting that it is "clear Ramat Shlomo is a part of Israel" in any future peace agreement, adding that it is "time the Left [bloc] decide if they are on Israel's side, or with the Palestinians."
