Labor chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich on Tuesday harshly condemned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for what she called the unprecedented severity of the socio-economic gap in Israel, as evidenced by data in the annual State of the Child in Israel report.

"This data is just a trailer for the social hell and economic chaos that will prevail here if Netanyahu will be elected prime minister again," Yacimovich said.

"A million children beneath the poverty line are the result of Netanyahu's reckless economic policy, which does not think it's responsible for providing honorable wages, shelter, a basic basket of food and health for Israel's families."
