M.S | DOP -

US Senator Bernie Sanders condemned Monday, March 6, the call of extremist Israeli finance minister, Bezalel Smotrich, to cleanse Huwara town in Nablus after Israeli colonizers attacked it.

“Israel’s finance minister [Bezalel Smotrich] just called for a Palestinian town to be erased. This disgusting rhetoric will get more innocent people killed.”

He added, “the extreme, right-wing Israeli government is creating the conditions for more violence and undermining democracy.”

On Wednesday, March 1, the extremist Israeli Finance Minister, Bezalel Smotrich, said that the town of Hawara, south of Nablus, “must be exterminated”.

Smotrich expressed his belief that “the state of Israel must do this, not individuals – referring to the Israeli settlers who attacked Hawara last Sunday.”

Earlier, Israeli colonizers stormed Hawara town, under the protection of the occupation forces, threw stones at Palestinian homes, set fire to garbage containers and Palestinian vehicles, and tried to burn olive trees. They also set fire to a Palestinian house with its residents inside.

The settlers’ attack on the town resulted in the killing of a Palestinian and the injury of 390 others.

Instead of controlling the security situation in the area, The Israeli occupation forces protected extremist settlers and participated in their attack on the Palestinian citizens.
