Sara Netanyahu says disengagement led to Gaza troubles

In a visit with the bereaved family of 4-year-old Daniel Tragerman in Nahal Oz, Sara Netanyahu says the Israeli 2005 withdrawal from the Gaza Strip led to the present situation.

“All the troubles began since the disengagement,” she says, according to Walla. Her husband, the finance minister in 2005, was a vocal opponent of the plan and resigned before its implementation.

She tells the Tragerman family that Netanyahu had mentioned Daniel’s death to UN chief Ban Ki-Moon, but says that his death is unlikely to be the subject of international investigation.

Sara Netanyahu also criticizes several Knesset members who, she says, took to Facebook to “gain political points.” Those Knesset members acted “irresponsibly,” she says.
