Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party accused former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon of flip-flopping on his positions shortly after the latter announced that he would run for leadership in Israel's next election.

Speaking at the Herzliya Conference earlier in the day, Ya'alon criticized Israel's current leadership, casting accusations of fear-mongering over the Iranian issue.

"Just a few months ago he said Iran is an existential concern for Israel, today when turned into a politician at the Herzliya Conference, he said that Israel faces no existential threat," the party said in a statement. "It's funny how quickly Ya'alon changed his hide."
