Masses Rally in Support of Israeli Right Wing Parties

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) -

As many as 100,000 people rallied in Tel Aviv on Sunday night in support of Israel’s right-wing parties as Israel’s prime minister entered a last-minute push to close a gap with his main challenger just days before the elections.

Latest polls have shown that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party trails the centrist Zionist Union by four seats. The numbers have rattled his party, sending it into a get-out-the-vote blitz. Netanyahu has delivered a series of media interviews and decided, last minute, to speak at the Tel Aviv rally in a bid to shore up votes.
