Sources close to Defense Minister Ehud Barak accused Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz of being "childish," saying he chose to "punish" Barak by cutting the defense budget after the defense minister opposed the package of tax hikes and budget cuts which was approved by the cabinet on Monday, Army Radio reported.

"Steinitz's behavior is childish and harmful to the state's security," Army Radio quoted the sources as saying.
