Likud Officials Indicate Peres is 'Senior Diplomatic Source' Behing Yedioth Quote

Senior Likud Beitenu officials have indicated that non other than President Peres is behind the headline in Yedioth Ahronoth last week, which quoted a senior diplomatic source as saying "Netanyahu is leading Israel to tragedy.” 

 According to Likud Beitenu, Peres had invited journalists for an off-the-record conversation, in which he voiced his criticism of Netanyahu, Haaretz reports.

"Peres' behavior with regard to the elections is inappropriate," the Likud Beiteinu officials added.
