Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon told Israel Radio on Tuesday that the ruling Likud would not permit any of its lawmakers to support an interim agreement with the Palestinians.

Danon, one of the more prominent hawks in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s party, said any faction member who backs an arrangement that “gives away our assets in exchange for nothing” will be removed from the Likud.

The deputy defense minister said that he trusted Netanyahu to avoid making the mistake of clinching an interim deal, and that he had received no indication the premier was considering such an option.
