Saudi Arabia rejects “extremist remarks” by two Israeli ministers who called for the displacement of Gaza’s population, the reoccupation of the Strip and the construction of settlements there, the foreign ministry says in a statement.

Far-right ministers Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben Gvir have both made comments to this effect in recent days, garnering a wave of criticism from the international community as well as from within the Israeli government.
