Arriving at the scene of this morning’s Jerusalem terror attack, National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir says Israel must respond to terror with military pressure.

“This type of incident proves again how much we can’t show weakness, how much we have to speak to Hamas only through intentions, only through the war,” he says, appearing to criticize the government’s ceasefire negotiations with the terror group.

He adds that this morning’s shooting attack, in which the Palestinian gunmen were said to have been shot and killed with the help of an off-duty soldier, supports his policy of having more civilians carry guns.
