Opposition Leader Yair Lapid responds to the scenes in the Knesset when members of the far-right Otzma Yehudit party shouted at the relatives of hostages held in Gaza.
The family members at the parliament begged National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir not to advance legislation for the death penalty for terrorists, in fear that such a law could have severe repercussions for their captive relatives.
“The families of the abductees cry out their pain and the pain of an entire country. There is no limit to the shamelessness of the coalition members who preach morality to families,” Lapid writes on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“What Almog Cohen did today will be remembered forever. He should be ashamed of himself,” Lapid writes.
Cohen yelled at the relatives that they have no “mandate” over pain.
