Shas to Attack Bayit Yehudi, as Bennett Challenges

Internal Shas polls indicate that a horse race is developing between the Sephardic Hareidi party and the Bayit Yehudi party, with at least five Knesset seats in the balance. As a result, said political observers, Shas has decided to attack Bayit Yehudi and its chairman, Naftali Bennett, in the hope that it can sway dithering voters to cast their vote for Shas.
