Israeli Minister of Public Security, Gilad Erdan, said in an interview with Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth:

“It’s time for the heads of Hamas to pay a personal price for organizing these terror attacks.”

Referring to the Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar and others who recently announced their intention to take part in the Palestinian protests at the Gaza border as well as their will to be killed near the border fence, the Israeli minister responded:

“We need to go back to targeted killings, and they need to go back to hiding underground and fearing for their lives, not organizing the masses to carry out terror attacks.”

Two days ago, Erdan had referred to the protesters in Gaza as ‘Nazis’, to justify the killing of 60 unarmed people and the wounding of thousands more.

An Israeli government minister has justified the killings in Gaza by Israeli occupation forces by calling Palestinians “Nazis”.

Meanwhile, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said that if Israel wanted “the Gaza border to be completely quiet, there’s no choice but to conquer the Strip,” but she added: “I don’t think that should be done at this time.”

Remarking on international criticism of the large death toll among Palestinians on the Gaza border, Shaked said:

“It is unpleasant, but we have a lot of experience, and we can deal with it.”
