Opposition leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday suggested that coalition whip and Yamina MK Idit Silman fabricated a story that she was recently assaulted at a gas station in order to tar opponents of the coalition.

Speaking at a Likud faction meeting, Netanyahu called on Silman to provide proof of the incident “or apologize to the two million Israeli citizens from the national camp she slandered.”

Meanwhile, MK Amichai Chikli (Yamina) attended the opposition meeting led by Netanyahu and the Likud.
