Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must make amends with Israel's Arab minority in the wake of his comments about high voter turnout in the tail-end of the recent election campaign, Zionist Union chief Isaac Herzog said on Saturday.

"When Netanyahu said that the Arabs were heading to the polls in droves, he humiliated and hurt 20 percent of Israel's citizens all in the name of his re-election drive," Herzog said. "His first order of business must be to right this wrong with deeds, not with empty words. He must heal this rift that he caused."
