Deputy speaker of the Knesset and member of the legislature’s foreign affairs and security committee, Nissim Vaturi, has called for the complete destruction of Gaza. Vaturi emphasized that ‘Israel’ should not allow any aid into Gaza Strip until all captives are released.
Expressing his belief that ‘Israel’ has been “too humane,” Vaturi criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s war cabinet for succumbing to international pressure and allowing the entry of only two trucks of fuel per day into Gaza. This decision came after a month-long ban on fuel, which resulted in a collapse of the health sector and other essential services for the 2.2 million Palestinians living in Gaza.
While the first truck carrying fuel from Egypt entered the Strip on Wednesday, it was confirmed that the delivery to hospitals was prohibited. This move further exacerbates the dire situation faced by the people of Gaza.
Vaturi’s alarming statement, which called for the burning of Gaza, has since been removed from his post on social media. However, the call to block aid from entering Gaza remains.
Adding to the distressing rhetoric, another Knesset member, Amichai Eliyahu, the so-called heritage minister of ‘Israel’, suggested that dropping a nuclear bomb on Gaza was “one of the possibilities.”
The director of the UN relief agency in Gaza (UNRWA) has condemned these statements as a brazen breach of humanity. Despite the arrival of 24,000 liters of diesel fuel in Gaza today, which barely meets the survival needs of the population, the situation remains dire for the 2.2 million Palestinians living in the Strip.
