Yachimovich: Netanyahu is leading Israel towards rift with US

Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich has accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of acting provocatively and in a manner that "compromises Israel's vital interest" by allowing the government to issue tenders for 198 settler homes in the West Bank on Wednesday.


"Netanyahu is ignoring the grave statements made by the US president about him, and is leading Israel towards international isolation and a rift with its closest ally," she added. (Moran Azulay)
