Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich said on Wednesday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanayhu's intent to adopt the Levy Report is "a transparent elections scheme" that will not help the settlers in the West Bank.

Yacimovich accused Netanayhu of "trying to bring back a fictitious argument between the Right and Left that does not exist anymore," as a way to divert attention away from the socioeconomic state of affairs.

The Levy Report, published three months ago by retired Supreme Court justice Edmond Levy, found that Israeli settlement in the West Bank is legal under international law and recommended that the government avoid demolishing illegal outposts.
