Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Sunday attacked the Likud and its leader, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for not supporting his party's legislation for parliamentary inquiries into human rights and left-wing NGOs, Army Radio reported.

"I expect loyalty and collegiality from the heads of the Likud," the foreign minister said ahead of the weekly cabinet meeting. "It's weird to me that they are acting so strongly against a proposal for creating parliamentary investigatory committees to investigate the funding of leftist organizations."

"I was surprised by the prime minister's announcement," he said, referring to Netanyahu's statement last week that he would not support the Yisrael Beiteinu inquiry initiative. "There's a campaign of delegitimization and lies against Yisrael Beiteinu and our proposal," Lieberman accused.
