National Union MKs Michael Ben-Ari and Arieh Eldad announced Tuesday that they are forming their own new faction ahead of elections to the 19th Knesset.

Eldad and Ben-Ari decided to form the new faction, called "Strong Israel," after they were unable to come to an agreement with the National Union, which is expected to be forming a joint list with Habayit Hayehudi.

Eldad will be first on the new party's list, followed by Ben-Ari and right-wing activist Baruch Marzel.
