Jerusalem: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is claiming a “great victory” for his right-wing bloc in Israel’s parliamentary elections, despite the still inconclusive results.
In a statement on Facebook late Tuesday, Netanyahu said Israelis have “given a great victory to the right and to the Likud under my leadership”.
The Likud emerged as the largest individual party and right-wing parties dominated the results, according to exit polls. But some of those parties oppose Netanyahu, making it unclear whether he will be able to form a new government. (AP)
