Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s main contender in the upcoming parliamentary elections panned his decision to freeze revenue transfers to the Palestinian Authority on Saturday.

Labor leader Isaac Herzog and Hatnua leader Tzipi Livni's camp said in a joint statement that "Netanyahu does not have any solutions for Israel's deteriorating situation internationally."

According to the two, who are running on a joint list, Netanyahu "is weak facing Abbas in the international arena and takes steps that cannot help IDF soldiers at [the International Criminal Court in] the Hague and will not stop the international wave," but they will "make diplomatic decisions that will enlist the world to Israel's side and give IDF soldiers and officers a legal and diplomatic flak jacket to protect them and stop the Palestinians' steps.

"We all remember how Netanyahu missed an international chance to demilitarize the Gaza Strip, choosing to speak to Hamas instead of enlisting the world to Israel's side and promote long-term solutions," Herzog and Livni added.
