Right-wing Israeli National Union Member of the Knesset Bezalel Smotrich yesterday called for killing a Palestinian in return for every rocket launched from the Gaza Strip, Quds Net reported.
On Twitter, Bezalel wrote: “From a tactical view, the battle in Gaza must end after killed 700 terrorists -one terrorist for each rocket.”
Smotrich refers to the number of Palestinian rockets allegedly launched at Israel from Gaza.
The minister, who is looking to become the country’s next justice ministry, head the National Union party which made an alliance with the Jewish Home and Jewish Power (Otzma Yehudit) parties to run under the Union of Right-Wing Parties alliance in Israel’s elections last month. The alliance has since joined the coalition government headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is serving his fifth term in office.
