Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu comes out against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for saying Israel must stop “this killing of women, of children, of babies” in Gaza.

During a new conference on Tuesday, Trudeau called on Israel to “exercise maximum restraint” while fighting against Hamas terrorists in Gaza, saying “the world is watching.”

“We’re hearing the testimonies of doctors, family members, survivors, kids who have lost their parents,” Trudeau said. “The world is witnessing this killing of women, of children, of babies. This has to stop.”

Responding to Trudeau, Netanyahu says, “it is not Israel that is deliberately targeting civilians but Hamas that beheaded, burned and massacred civilians in the worst horrors perpetrated on Jews since the Holocaust.”

“It is Hamas not Israel that should be held accountable for committing a double war crime – targeting civilians while hiding behind civilians,” Netanyahu writes on the X platform.

“The forces of civilization must back Israel in defeating Hamas barbarism.”
