Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was set to speak to the press on Tuesday evening following his decision that he made earlier to fire Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni. 
 
"In the last couple of weeks and over the last day, Lapid and Livni have forcefully attacked the government," he said.

"I will not tolerate this opposition from within," he added.
