An incitement complaint was issued against the Likud on Monday, a day after the party held a press conference in which Likud MKs claimed that Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog improperly received funds from V15 (Victory in 2015), an organization working to bring down the government.

V15 issued the complaint, claiming that in a video clip shown by the Likud at the press conference, the group was portrayed as supporting terror.

"The Likud video proves that it has become a branch of the Lehava organization," V15 stated, referencing the extremist right-wing anti-assimilation group.

The group added that its activists were "Israelis who serve in the army, do reserve duty, pay taxes and work for a better future for Israel."

"This incitement does not scare us and it will not block our path to victory."

The Likud claimed Sunday that Herzog violated laws by accepting contributions from V15, who itself received funds from One Voice, which has received money from multiple foreign governments, organizations and non-Israeli citizens.
