Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday  threatened the government of an early election and called for ministers to stop publicly "undermining and attacking" him.

In response to recent criticism of the premier made by ministers in his coalition, Netanyahu warned that if the government could not function on the same page, then it would faces an election before the one scheduled for 2017.

"I am not afraid of elections. But the public wants a government that can function," he said at a Likud faction meeting, adding that "We can't function when they [ministers] attack so much."
