Likud slams opposition lawmakers for criticizing Netanyahu in light of Iran deal

July 14, 2015 12:16

The ruling Likud party criticized opposition lawmakers on Tuesday for assailing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's policies in light of the nuclear agreement struck between Iran and the Western powers.

"Instead of presenting a unified front on a fateful issue for Israel, on which there is no Right or Left, and on which everyone knows Israel's security is at stake, some politicians are engaging in narrow political prattle at the expense of the interests of Israel," the party said in a statement. "The prime minister never promised that there would not be a deal, only that Iran would not obtain nuclear weapons, and that promise still holds, today more than ever."
