Independence Party Responds to Ya'alon's Remarks

The director of the Independence Party responded Saturday night to remarks made by Vice PM Moshe Ya'alon in regards to DM Ehud Barak, saying "The needs of the Likud during the primaries and the need to suck up to the extreme right in Likud has caused Ya'alon to make these pathetic statements."

He said DM Barak will "continue to work on the Iranian threat to Israel's security and strengthening and deepening relations with the United States."
