"The Likud will win the upcoming elections, Benjamin Netanyahu will remain Prime Minister, and everything else is just ripples on the surface of the water."

Construction and Housing Minister Yoav Gallant criticized Israel Resilience party leader and former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz on Saturday, saying that "eight words and a poster are not a worthy alternative to a government."

"It is plain innocence to seek to lead a nation with no experience," Gallant said of Gantz. "I did not join politics and immediately claim we need change. Israel has good leadership, and before you claim you want to replace it, get some experience first. This is not the military."

"The Likud will win the upcoming elections, Benjamin Netanyahu will remain Prime Minister, and everything else is just ripples on the surface of the water," Gallant said. "The Likud is stronger than it was before."

Gallant also said that Israel is focused on "dealing with the terror tunnels from Gaza and Lebanon," and claimed that Israel's next goal is to "remove Iran from Syria."
