The Israeli election campaign for parliament is heating up.

On his Facebook page, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz of the ruling Likud faction took a swipe at Yair Lapid for being vertically challenged.

Lapid, the Yesh Atid chairman, served as finance minister under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before being unceremoniously fired last month.

In the Facebook post, Katz posted a photograph of Lapid standing on an object as he is delivering a speech behind a podium at a conference. Underneath the picture, he writes: “Yair Lapid, how low can you go? Go look for another horse to ride on.”

Lapid has attacked Netanyahu and Likud during the campaign, with each side blaming the other for the high cost of living.
