SCRIPT
Blue and White Party leader Benjamin Gantz held a closing rally in Tel Aviv on Sunday, ahead of the upcoming elections.
During the rally, Gantz accused his electoral rival Benjamin Netanyahu of "spreading fake news," noting that the incumbent prime minister was "willing to run over the democracy with a D9 tractor - all for his immunity."
The former Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also compared the ongoing election campaign to "a pregnancy that will end with a Blue and White government."
Gantz, who failed to unseat Netanyahu during the April vote, may have another chance during the upcoming elections. Israel will hold snap elections on September 17, as Netanyahu was unable to form a governing coalition after the elections in April.
