Tzipi Livni on Saturday attacked Naftali Bennett, accusing the Bayit Yehudi leader of instigating in conjunction with "extremist Rabbis" the clashes between the IDF and residents of the Oz Zion outpost.

Some 200 settlers threw stones at security security forces attempting to evacuate the illegal West Bank outpost on Friday, forcing the evacuation to be postponed until after Shabbat.

Livni accused Bennett of creating unrest amongst the settlers, which led to the confrontation.

Bennett stirred controversy last week when he said he would ask to be exempted from orders to remove settlers from their homes were he in such a position and flirted with the possibility of order refusal.
