MK Omer Bar-Lev (Labor) came out in support of Economy Minister Naftali Bennett on Thursday night after Bennett threatened to leave the government if the peace talks deal passed.

"The only person in the government who stands by his principles is Bennett, while Livni and Lapid continue serving as a fig leaf for continued stagnation," he said.

"I would expect from Hatnua and Yesh Atid to deliver an ultimatum of their own and to declare that if there is not a building freeze outside the blocs and if there is no major breakthrough in negotiations in the next few months, that they will quit the government," he added.
