Yair Lapid, the Opposition leader, launched a fierce critique of the current administration following Moody's international credit rating agency's decision to downgrade Israel's credit score. 

"The credit rating downgrade is yet another testament to the fact that this government is dysfunctional and causing harm to the public," stated Lapid. 

"For more than a year, this administration has shown disregard for economic growth, introduced a reckless and irresponsible budget, and amid war, not one of the 38 ministers is advocating for the Israeli economy. 

The State of Israel is in dire need of a new and competent government," he added.
