Defense Minister Benny Gantz says anyone who believes in democracy should be pained by the violent storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters.

“I didn’t believe I would see pictures like these in the strongest democracy in the world,” Gantz tweets.

He adds: “This is proof that before political rivalry, we must agree on the rules of the game — protecting the rule of law, respecting democratic procedures and respectful discourse.”
