An argument erupted Sunday during a Labor Party meeting between party leader Ehud Barak and Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer.

Ben-Eliezer was angry with Barak after the defense minister allegedly leaked false information regarding a secret meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davotuglu last week.

Ben-Eliezer alleged that Barak was opposed to the secret meeting, and then told the defense minister's media spokesman, Barak Seri, "I'll skewer you. I am Iraqi. You don't know who are dealing with."
