Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is facing two options - to lead to a historic turn in peace talks, or cave in to the demands of the Right, opposition leader Shelly Yacimovich (Labor) said on Sunday.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu knows well that he is facing two options - releasing prisoners or freezing [construction] in isolated settlements, and for political reasons he chose knowingly to release prisoners," Yacimovich said.

"This is the less favorable decision, and it is difficult and outrageous, but once this has been agreed on with the US, any violation of this decision is a complete backtracking of the little that has been achieved so far in talks with the Palestinians," she added.
