MK Avigdor Liberman sharply criticized Yair Netanyahu, son of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, in an interview on Reshet Bet radio on Sunday.

Responding to comments made by Yair Netanyahu against Liberman in the past on Twitter, Liberman said, "I do not respond to family, wife and children, and certainly not to an over-grown, lazy child who is suffering from mental illness and schizophrenia."

The Yisrael Beytenu chairman also attacked the Prime Minister over his conduct during the coronavirus crisis and on the issue of sovereignty.

"I am not only bothered by the fact that Netanyahu is trying to humiliate Gantz, who might be deserving of it," Liberman said of Sunday’s confrontation between Netanyahu and the Alternate Prime Minister during the Coronavirus Cabinet meeting.

"He is also humiliating the Chief of Staff and the head of the Shin Bet. I do not recall such an atmosphere where the head of the Shin Bet and the Chief of Staff were not included in a move like the annexation move, which requires their involvement in the field."

On the coronavirus crisis, Liberman said that "what needs to be done is to transfer responsibility and coordination to the Home Front Command, and simply stop wasting time. Netanyahu does not want to lose control, and he is not managing the coronavirus crisis, but rather running a PR campaign."
