Yair LapidPress Release

Opposition leader Yair Lapid and gave a statement on the American intention to sanction the Netzach Yehuda battalion.

“American sanctions against the Netzach Yehuda battalion are a mistake, and we must work to cancel them.”

“The root of the problem is not in the IDF, but in the political leadership. The world understands that Minister Ben-Gvir is not interested in having the police enforce the law in Judea and Samaria, and that Minister Smotrich is not opposing Jewish terrorism or extremist settler riots.”

“The result is a serious blow to Israel's standing as a country of law and serious reduction of our international status.”

“The IDF's soldiers and officers are the first ones to sufferfrom these reckless policies and the government's political failures."
