Former prime minister Ehud Barak slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday, saying that "the only thing that will remain from the Netanyahu administration is the saying 'there won't be anything because nothing happened.'"

Netanyahu said this regarding allegation of corruption against him, meaning that he will not be indicted for corruption because ‘nothing happened.’Barak went on to say that the Right-led administration is “abandoning citizens, and not only in Gaza border communities.”

Israelis who live in such communities are exposed to ongoing rocket attacks from the terrorist group Hamas and other factions, as well as arson started by incendiary balloons launched from the Gaza Strip.
“The issue isn’t where I’ll be, but to where Israel is heading,” said Barak, who is tenth place in the Democratic Union Party, which merges Meretz, his own party, and MK Stav Shaffir who left Labor to join it.
