The Labor party on Wednesday slammed the PMO's campaign to advertise the measures it has taken to reduce the cost of living, branding its timing as "ironic and cruel."

"It is ironic and cruel that on the same day it is reported that 16 thousand families were thrown out of work in the last month, Netanyahu's government presents happy, carefree families," Labor said in a statement.

"It is an advertising campaign that is entirely a electoral publicity stunt, and which is funded by public money," the statement read."It is a shame that the millions it costs were not invested in more worthy goals."
