Chairman of the National Unity Party, MK Benny Gantz, attacks Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who called a press conference to refute claims that judicial system reform will harm Israel's economy.

"He despises the protesters, he threatens the Attorney General, and he cancels the Governor - but the reason to stop the coup d'état is not only a drop in the credit rating and not only because protection of IDF commanders abroad will be harmed - but first and foremost because it will destroy the basic values upon which the State of Israel was founded."

"Netanyahu, history will not forgive you for the campaign to destroy the system of government and the rift you are creating in the nation. It is not too late to stop," Gantz said.
