The Palestinian Authority foreign ministry issues a statement condemning the assertion by Israeli Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu that dropping a nuclear bomb on the Gaza Strip is an option.

“The statements by fascist minister Eliyahu are an honest declaration and clear acknowledgment of what the occupying state [Israel] is doing against our people… particularly in Gaza,” says the statement.

Eliyahu’s comments were quickly disavowed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also suspended the minister from cabinet meetings.
