Right-wing Israeli politician and Deputy Mayor of West Jerusalem, Aryeh King, called for burying Palestinian prisoners from the Gaza Strip alive, Al-Jazeera reported.

King, a candidate for the position of Israel’s National Security Minister and the potential future mayor of West Jerusalem, posted pictures on his X account on Friday, showing Palestinian prisoners who had been kidnapped by Israeli occupation forces in Gaza and forced to strip except for their underwear.

In the post, he described Palestinian prisoners as “Nazis”, saying that the only way to deal with them is burying them alive, because they are “nothing but a group of ants”.

“Now they must be buried (alive) so that no one will ever face them again,” he said.

One of the platform’s activists commented by saying that he would be held accountable for these statements at the International Criminal Court, but King responded that he should not be held accountable for calling for the killing of “Nazis”.

According to Arab American newspaper Watan, “it appears that the tweet is no longer available, indicating that the ‘X’ platform likely deleted it due to its extreme content.

On Thursday, Israeli media showed pictures revealing that the Israeli army had gathered Palestinian civilians on sandy terrain, with an Israeli flag placed on the side. 

In another photo, the prisoners, almost naked, were transported in a military vehicle to an unknown location. 

The number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli war on Gaza since October 7 has reached 17,490, including 7,870 children and 6,121 women, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza. 46,480 were wounded.
