Barkat calls on Gantz to backtrack on Netanyahu criticism

Former mayor of Jerusalem and Likud candidate Nir Barkat responded to Israel Resilience leader Benny Gantz's speech Tuesday evening, saying "that's not how a paratrooper behaves, and certainly not a former chief of staff."
"Even during an election period, there are things that are not done and said, and even when there is criticism, it should be said in a factual and respectful way towards a prime minister who represents the State of Israel vis-à-vis the entire world."
"Benny, don't sling mud at a prime minister who risked his life, was wounded and lost his brother, all for the sake of Israel's security," Barkat wrote, calling on Gantz to backtrack on his statement.
