Germany has become the latest country to condemn Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich and National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir for suggesting that Gazans should be resettled in another country.

Berlin “reject[s] in all clarity unhelpful remarks by Israeli government ministers proposing Palestinians should leave Gaza in large numbers,” a German foreign ministry spokesman says. “Our position is clear: there must neither be any expulsions nor any territorial reduction of the Gaza Strip.”
