Lapid slams Eliyahu’s ‘horrifying and insane remark,’ urges PM to promptly fire him

Opposition Leader Yair Lapid lambastes Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu’s assertion that dropping a nuclear bomb on the Gaza Strip is a possibility, branding it “a horrifying and insane remark by an irresponsible minister.”

“He offended the families of the [241 Gaza] captives, offended Israeli society and harmed our international standing,” Lapid says. “The presence of the extremists in the government endangers us and the success of the war goals — defeating Hamas and returning the hostages.

“Netanyahu must fire him this morning.”
