Lapid calls for home demolitions ‘tonight’

“We must take tougher measures, including those we have not taken before,” Finance Minister Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) says.

“The houses of these terrorists must be demolished tonight, and the terrorists that set out to commit terror attacks must know that they will not return to them alive. We will spare nothing, we will act with a heavy hand in Jerusalem, we will not allow this to continue.”

Lapid echoes other Israeli leaders in blaming incitement by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for the attack and adds, “Everything is on the table… they must know that neither they, nor their families, nor anybody else will escape unscathed from this kind of murder.”
