Telem Chairman former IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon announced leaving his coalition with Yesh Atid to run alone, reports Israel Hayom.

Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid tweeted a gracious farewell: "I greatly appreciate and respect Bogie Ya'alon and wish him success on his way."

Ya'alon announced in 2018 that he would set up a new political party to run in the upcoming Knesset elections the next April.

"I promised and I'm keeping it," Ya'alon said. "I'm going to head a party, it's our time to take responsibility," calling for new leadership to "bring hope to Israel."
