Bayit Hayehudi chair Naftali Bennett's statements on refusing to expel settlers hurt the IDF and the Right, Vice Premier and former IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon said on Friday.

"This statement, first of all, hurts the IDF, because the army is founded on carrying out orders," Ya'alon said in an interview with Army Radio.

"As someone opposed to displacing settlements, I think that it also hurts the Right in Israel, because if you support and justify refusing orders, then what can we say to [Meretz Leader] Zehava Gal-On, [Labor candidate] Merav Michaeli and their friends on the Left when they refuse to send their children to Judea and Samaria?" he said.
