The deputy speaker of Israel’s Knesset, Nissim Vaturi, has called for Gaza to be burnt down.

“All of this preoccupation with whether or not there is internet in Gaza shows that we have learned nothing,” Nissim Vaturi posted on the social media platform, X, on Friday.

“We are too humane. Burn Gaza now no less!” he said.

“Don’t allow fuel in, don’t allow water in until the hostages are returned back!” the far-right Likud politician added.

Vaturi’s comments are the latest in a number of inflammatory remarks by Israeli politicians on the Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

Earlier this month, Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu suggested using nuclear weapons against the Palestinian enclave.

A few days later, Agriculture Minister Avi Dichter said during an interview that Israel’s military operation was the “2023 Gaza Nakba”.

During the Nakba, translated as ‘The Catastrophe’, nearly 500 villages were destroyed, entire Palestinian towns depopulated and approximately 800,000 Palestinians exiled to make room for Jewish immigrants who arrived from all corners of the globe.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Israel has, thus far, killed over 12,000 Palestinians, including 5,000 children and over 3,000 women.

The Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

  1. ” Wasreal ” …
    they won’t survive this. the Zionists are to blame for destroying Israel. Many Israeli citizens don’t want this.

  2. Israel has one goal and it is noble: win militarily and then root out the hate for Jews in Gaza the same way it was rooted out of Germany.
