MK Yechimovich: PM Has Full Support of Labor Party


MK Shelly Yechimovich (labor) related on Wednesday to Operation Protective Shield and said, “There is a tendency, when rockets hit cities in central Israel, to view it as a greater strategic threat. I don’t accept it. The blood of Tel-Aviv residents is no redder than the blood of Sderot residents. “

On Prime Minister Netanyahu’s conduct she said, “We cannot ignore the fact that he is now acting responsibly and is demonstrating patience and restraint. Even if we have the full right to defend the residents of the south and destroy Hamas’ infrastructure, every act must be implemented with patience. As long as he acts in this way, he will receive the full backing of the labor party.”
