Israeli Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu said on Sunday that dropping a nuclear bomb on the besieged Gaza Strip is “an option”, Israeli media reported.

According to Haaretz, Eliyahu made the comments during a radio interview, maintaining that “there are no non-combatants in Gaza,” adding that providing humanitarian aid to the Strip would constitute “a failure.”

When asked whether a nuclear attack on Gaza is an option, Eliyahu responded “That’s one way”, Haaretz reported.

Following criticism from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Yair Lapid, Eliyahu wrote on X that “the statement about the atom is metaphorical.”

“However,” he continued, “a strong and disproportionate response to terrorism is definitely required.”

Israel has, thus far, killed over 9,488 Palestinians in Gaza, including 3,900 children and 2,500 women, and wounded more than 24,000. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.

To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.

  1. Israel has had a powerful grip over the U S since inception. This is why the US is forced to turn a blind eye to war crimes and genocide.
