Israeli Opposition Leader Says his Party Is to Lodge a Bill in the Knesset Recognizing the Armenian Genocide

Yonatan Sindel/Flash90

''Yesh Atid'' leader Yair Lapid on Monday called Israel’s reconciliation deal with Turkey last year a “diplomatic mistake,” amid a spiraling war of words between Ankara and Jerusalem, The Times of Israel reports. 

Lapid said his party would lodge a bill in the Knesset recognizing the Armenian genocide - a step Israel has traditionally refrained from taking over fears of angering Turkey, with which Israel re-established ties in 2016.
