Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman called on Labor chairman Avi Gabbay on Monday to reveal a video of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Gabbay recorded on his phone during coalition talks.

When Gabbay was negotiating joining Netanyahu's government, he asked Netanyahu to say on camera that he will not add Liberman to the coalition. Gabbay asked for the commitment after his predecessor Isaac Herzog negotiated with Netanyahu, who instead made a deal with Yisrael Beytenu behind Herzog's back.

"The prime minister said he was ready to throw away Liberman," he said. "I hope Gabbay shows everyone what is on his phone."

Liberman blasted the Israel Hayom newspaper for not including Yisrael Beytenu in the Right bloc in a poll in Monday's newspaper.

Gabbay responded that he would only reveal the tape when Liberman reveals who paid millions to his daughter Michal when she was 21, which was the subject of a past investigation.
