Tel Aviv (UNA/WAFA) - In a call to escalate the massacres committed by the Israeli occupation forces against our people in the Gaza Strip, Israeli Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu said that throwing an atomic bomb on the Gaza Strip may be an available option.
In a media interview on Sunday, Eliyahu, from the “Jewish Greatness” party led by extremist minister Itamar Ben Gvir, said, “One of the options before Israel is to drop an atomic bomb on the Gaza Strip.”
Regarding the fate of detainees in the Gaza Strip if this option is resorted to, the minister in the occupation government commented: “I pray and hope for their return, but there are costs to war.”
He also stressed that aid should not be provided to “Nazis,” in reference to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
The statements of Israeli Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu sparked widespread condemnation.
It is noteworthy that Eliyahu was not the only Israeli official who called for the use of weapons of mass destruction in Gaza. He was preceded by former Knesset member Moshe Feiglin, who called on his account on the “X” platform to strike the Gaza Strip with nuclear weapons. .
Likud Party MK Tali Gottlief also called on the Israeli army to use “doomsday” nuclear missiles in Gaza.
