Leader of the Opposition Isaac Herzog slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday morning for firing the CEO of the Communications Ministry Avi Berger.

Netanyahu, who is the acting Communications Minister, dismissed Berger on Sunday.

"Is Bibi learning from our neighbors in the region? He is waging a war on the media with all force. He fires a CEO from the Communication Ministry with a phone call so that everyone understands who is boss," Herzog wrote on Facebook.  

"We will not let him," he added. 

Herzog wrote that the Zionist Union would explore options for challenging Netanyahu's decision.

In the statement, Herzog wrote that the struggle against Netanyahu's decision must also be taken up by the public and by the media.
