Israel Beiteinu leader Avigdor Liberman warned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a speech to his supporters in Jerusalem that his party would reserve the freedom to act independently despite its partnership in the government.

Speaking at a pre-Passover toast attended by hundreds of Israel Beiteinu activists, Liberman complained about the handling of Hebron, Migron, criteria for housing benefits, and  conscription to the IDF. He said Israel Beiteinu would promote its own initiatives and legislation on such controversial issues.
