The likelihood of former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz and MK Orly Levy-Abecasis running together took a hit Sunday when Levy-Abecasis's Gesher party started its campaign by attacking Gantz.

The ad mocked Gantz's ads by using their same army green color but depicting statistics about poor kids and closed businesses, followed by a call to "remind the generals that there is life outside the battlefield."

The Gesher ad concluded with an alarm clock and the slogan: "This is the time to wake up."

Gantz has actually been involved in multiple socioeconomic organizations since leaving the army.

A spokesman for Gantz declined to respond to the ad.
