Smotrich calls Palestinian gunmen holding Israeli man’s body ‘murderous subhumans’

Religious Zionism party leader Bezalel Smotrich, a far-right leader aiming to become defense minister in the incoming government, calls Palestinian gunmen holding the body of an Israeli man “subhuman.”

The gunmen are holding captive the body of 18-year-old Tiran Fero, who was hospitalized in the West Bank city of Jenin following a severe car crash.

Fero’s uncle has said the man was still alive when the gunmen stormed in, apparently believing he was an Israeli soldier, disconnected him from life support and kidnapped him.

“Murderous subhumans who need to suffer a blow they won’t forget,” Smotrich tweets.
