Likud owns up to anti-Bennett campaign
The Likud party has admitted that a supposedly anonymous ad attacking Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett was in fact published on its behalf.


The party announced to the Central Election Committee Chairman Justice Elyakim Rubinstein that it takes responsibility for an unmarked picture published on Facebook where Bennett can be seen together with a number of rabbis considered extreme. The Likud promised not to publish any more anonymous images online and Justice Rubinstein ordered the party to pay Habayit Hayehudi 1,000 NIS (roughly $265) in compensation. (Telem Yahav)
