Opposition leader Yair Lapid says violence by West Bank settlers “crosses all lines,” after a Palestinian village was attacked today in the latest such rampage.

“Torching homes and cars of innocents is inhumane and definitely not Jewish. Prime Minister Netanyahu needs to condemn this disgrace and deal with it severely. This is a moral disgrace and security threat,” Lapid writes on Twitter.

He also calls on settler leaders to denounce “this extremist and violence group,” which he charges is “receiving backing” from far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir and accuses of “damaging and disgracing the vast majority of settlers.”
