Israel’s far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir filed a lawsuit on Sunday against former defence minister Moshe Ya’alon.

“I filed a lawsuit against the “failed former Member of Knesset Moshe Ya’alon for spreading lies against me,” Ben-Gvir wrote in a post on his Twitter account.

“If Ya’alon thinks that the immunity granted to him by the Knesset is eternal, he is making a bitter mistake,” Ben-Gvir added.

“The days of silence about lies and slander are over. I will see you in court,” Ben-Gvir went on, directing his words at Ya’alon.
