Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office helped coordinate today’s Knesset panel discussion, led by the far-right Otzma Yehudit party, to discuss dead-on-arrival legislation to impose the death penalty on terrorists, Channel 12 reports.

The families of hostages in Gaza had reached out to government ministers begging them not to go forward with the legislation, arguing that it puts the lives of their loved ones at risk.

But Otzma Yehudit went ahead with today’s hearing, regardless, sparring aggressively with the hostages’ families during the session.
