Former mayor of Jerusalem and Likud candidate Nir Barkat responded to Israel Resilience leader Benny Gantz's speech Tuesday evening, saying "that's not how a paratrooper behaves, and certainly not a former chief of staff."

"Even during an election period, there are things that are not done and said, and even when there is criticism, it should be said in a factual and respectful way towards a prime minister who represents the State of Israel vis-à-vis the entire world.""Benny, don't sling mud at a prime minister who risked his life, was wounded and lost his brother, all for the sake of Israel's security," Barkat wrote, calling on Gantz to backtrack on his statement.
