Bennett’s call to ‘strike Hamas mercilessly’ said to enrage Netanyahu

Economics Minister Naftali Bennett said in an outburst earlier on Monday that Israel must “strike Hamas mercilessly,” to the outrage of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Channel 2 reports.

Bennett says Israel must do everything it can to destroy the terror tunnels, and “we need to say to the residents of the region near Gaza in a clear voice that we’re ending this threat now.”

According to a translation of his remarks outside a Ashkelon hospital by Israel National News, Bennett said that “Egypt has humiliated Hamas and so the entire constellation is one that enables us, this time, to bring them to their knees, and we have to do just that.”
