Labor head Shelly Yechimovich on Monday slammed the government for approving sweeping austerity measures, saying the move would primarily hurt the middle class.

"[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu's cuts, which were approved today by government, are not the solution but part of the problem," she said. "A just and fair economy and society are the basis upon which the state of Israel must be founded. But these concepts are completely foreign to Netanyahu."
