Lapid calls for attack on Syrian crematorium

Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid calls for Israel to attack the crematorium that Syrian President Bashar Assad is allegedly using to burn the bodies of executed political prisoners.

“We have to wipe that crematorium off the face of the earth,” Lapid writes in a Facebook post.

The party leader says Israel has a “moral responsibility to act when within striking distance of the IDF people are being burnt. We have to wipe that crematorium off the face of the earth.”

Lapid asks how the Jewish people can demand to know why the world did not target the Auschwitz or Mauthausen crematoria during the Holocaust, but not take action now.

“Why did the world know [what was happening], but not do anything? Well now we know, and we’re not doing anything,” he writes.
