Health Ministry director-general Moshe Bar Siman Tov suspends a healthcare system worker who posted on social media nationalistic and racist comments supporting the murderous acts carried out by Hamas terrorists from Gaza on Saturday morning.

“The Health Ministry does not countenance any expressions supporting the horrific massacres that took the lives of hundreds of Israelis,” the ministry said in a statement. “Healthcare system workers — Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze and Circassians alike — act and will always act together with mercy and love of fellow man to save human lives.”
