Incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel's Blue and White party leader Binyamin Gantz both claimed victory in the country's general elections, despite tight results in exit polls. Hundreds of Netanyahu supporters rallied in Tel Aviv on Tuesday to celebrate his proclaimed victory.
One supporter argued that Netanyahu is «the messiah of Israel,» adding that «you cannot change the... Еще country of Israel without Bibi.»
Another supporter noted that «without Netanyahu, there will be a catastrophe.»
Exit polls showed a neck-and-neck battle between Netanyahu's Likud party and Gantz, with projections putting Likud in a stronger position to form a majority coalition in the 120-seat parliament.
