Report Removed After Shaked Denies


Yamina party leader Ayelet Shaked succeeded in squelching the latest fake news related to the coalition talks on Thursday.

Shaked denied a report that she was open to forming a government with Benny Gantz’s Blue and White without Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu‏‏’s Likud party.

“I would like to clarify, the publication on the Kipa website isn’t true, the things weren’t said by me, the article was removed,” she said in a tweet.

“We’re committed to the 55 [seat] bloc on the hope that a right-wing or unity government will be established,” she reaffirmed.

The initial quote was taken down from the news site without explanation.
