Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu accuses the government of being soft on Hamas, following a deadly terror attack in Jerusalem yesterday by a member of the terror group.

“Hamas must pay a heavy price for the heinous attack in the heart of Jerusalem,” says Netanyahu at the weekly Likud faction meeting. “But we don’t see a stronghanded [approach] against terrorism, just as we don’t see it in the fight against Iran.”

He also calls for the coalition Ra’am party to more forcefully condemn the terror attack, which killed 26-year-old Eli Kay and injured several others. Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas had condemned “violence on all sides” in response to the attack.
