Netanyahu Hits back at Ben-Gvir
On the other hand, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the so-called National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir sparred over Zionist settlements.
At the opening of An Israeli cabinet meeting, Netanyahu responded to Ben-Gvir, who called to “run to the hilltops…and strengthen our control” on Friday. The Israeli PM said that “statements calling to seize territory illegally, and the action of seizing territory illegally are not acceptable to me.”
“They undermine the rule of law in Judea and Samaria and they must stop immediately,” Netanyahu stated, referring to the Jewish name of the West Bank. “Not only will we not back such actions, our government will act firmly against them,” he added.
Ben-Gvir tweeted later that he “appreciates and loves the prime minister, but our governance problem does not begin with settlers in Judea and Samaria, but with leniency towards rioters in the Golan Heights and the lack of enforcement in Rahat. I oppose selective enforcement.”
