Yamina Party leaders Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked both gave indications on Wednesday that they were ready to enable the formation of a government that would replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bennett told Yamina MKs on Wednesday night that their party was facing “a well-oiled machine of bullying and terror” from the Likud and the Religious Zionist Party, but would ignore it and would “do only what is good for the people of Israel.” He blasted Religious Zionist Party leader Bezalel Smotrich and the Likud for promising to bring defectors from the change camp to the pro-Netanyahu camp and not delivering.

In a statement to the press at the Knesset, Shaked said her party was “trying to be flexible and paying a price to form a government and prevent a fifth election.” Smotrich earlier accused Bennett and Shaked of being on their way to what he called a left-wing government. He said that they misled right-wing voters when they said a government with Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid was off the table, and that they took that step merely to ease right-wing pressure on them during Operation Guardian of the Walls in the Gaza Strip.
