Netanyahu dismisses Ya’alon criticism as ‘political attacks that should be paid no mind’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed criticism by former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon on Thursday as mere “political attacks that should be paid no mind.”

“Security is a serious matter. You can’t say at a conference in Munich four months ago that Iran is an existential threat to Israel, and today at the Herzliya Conference say that Iran is not an existential threat to Israel,” he said, referring to Ya’alon’s assertions.

“You can’t express complete trust in the leadership when you’re part of it, and say the complete opposite when you’re out.”
