"He has harmed our relations with the US and hasn't brought about an improved agreement," new Labor Party leader MK Isaac Herzog said in criticism to Netanyahu's response to the new deal power brokered with Iran.

"He (Netanyahu) did the right thing by calling global attention to the Iranian issue, but he's just missing the point now," Herzog told Channel 10 on Monday.

"He has created a total lack of trust between us and Obama rather than a trusting relationship," he added . "I think he's generating unnecessary panic. Judgement day isn't here yet."

"The window created in the last six months was critical and there's only friction instead of dialogue. Ministers are jumping at every open microphone. Does one really think that Yacimovich or Steinitz can change the situation?"

Herzog also criticized the American administration for not securing closer communication with Israel, which he said is injurious to relations.
