After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son Yair liked a tweet by historian and political commentator Gadi Taub – in which he predicts that MK Gideon Sa’ar will conspire against Netanyahu to break away from the Likud Party to form a government with Blue and White leader Benny Gantz – Sa’ar struck back against the allegations via Twitter on Sunday.

“Again, unfounded conspiracy plots and delusions about me are emanating from Balfour [Street, the prime minister’s residence],” Sa’ar wrote on Twitter. “It’s hard to understand how it helps the Likud or the State of Israel.”
For a long time, Sa’ar has had tense relations with the prime minister and his family.
After the September election, he announced that he intended to run against Netanyahu for the Likud leadership should the party hold primary elections.
Netanyahu and his main supporters previously accused Sa’ar of intending to topple Netanyahu’s stronghold on the Likud leadership.
Last week, Sa’ar slammed the prime minister’s handling of the security situation.
