Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz accused Health Ministry Director-General Prof. Ronni Gamzu of incitement against the Treasury and prime minister, in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday morning.

Steinitz was referring to Gamzu's claims that the Finance Ministry was run similar to a mafia and that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had threatened to bring doctors in from India if the residents' strike was not resolved.

"How does it happen that the director-general of a government office speaks to a group of justices and says that the conclusion of the conversation is that the residents will continue to strike?" the minister continued, refusing to say if he sought Gamzu's resignation.
