Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's political rivals on Friday, according to Channel 10 news.

"I suggest Yair Lapid to relax, Gabbay does not exist, Livney is delusional, nothing is going to help them," Regev said before targeting Former Chief of Staff Benny Gantz. "I expect from someone who wishes to strip his army uniform and enter the political arena to tell us who he is. You take part in our politics and wish to run for the Prime Minister position, state your agenda, take responsibility!"

Regev has also expressed her willingness to conclude her term as the Culture and Sports minister saying she "definitely wishes to say her goodbyes," she conveyed. "I made tremendous revolutions in my position, even the next two ministers will not be able to undo what I did, even if they try."

Last week, Regev slammed Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit's decision to release a statement on the indictment before the upcoming elections in April.

"I know Mandelblit is a decent and honest man, but he was sitting on a decision regarding the recommendations and collecting the materials for many months," Regev said questioning the release timing for the indictment decision. "A prime minister must defend himself in the most worthy and respectable and legal manner."

"I believe Mandelblit has a lot of pressure on him, he is under enormous pressure to do everything in order to harm Netanyahu's public image," Regev added.
