Netanyahu says minister’s remark about nuking Gaza is ‘detached from reality’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly disavows Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu’s contention that dropping a nuclear bomb on the Gaza Strip is a possibility.

“Amichai Eliyahu’s words are detached from reality,” Netanyahu says in a statement. “Israel and the IDF are acting in accordance with the highest standards of international law in order to prevent harm to uninvolved people, and we will continue to do that all the way to victory.”
