Former Minister Gideon Sa'ar said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused him falsely. "He has crossed a red line," he said to the Army Radio on Thursday morning.
Netanyahu accused his previous number two in the Likud of conspiring to overthrow him after the 2019 Knesset election on Wednesday. Netanyahu confirmed an Israel Hayom
report that he is concerned that after the election, President Reuven Rivlin would ask a different Likud MK to form the government.
The Israel Hayom
report said a Likud figure who is considered very close to Rivlin spoke about the idea with two other Likud MKs in recent days, asking for their support.
Sa'ar called on the PM to present evidence of his alleged subversive behavior.
