Israeli science minister Ofir Akunis (Likud) has expressed dismay for not giving orders to execute a Palestinian young man on site instead of arresting him during a raid in al-Am’ari refugee camp in Ramallah.
In televised remarks last Thursday, Akunis criticized the orders given to Israel security forces assigned to capture the wanted Palestinian, saying he should have been liquidated during the operation.
“It would have been better if they would have finished the job, just finished the job and shot him. We do not need to take him into custody, we need him dead,” he said.
“They needed to just shoot him. Find him, then shoot him,” he added.
Last month, during an Israeli military campaign in Am’ari camp, 32-year-old Islaam Yousef Abu Hamid dropped a marble slab on a soldier’s head. The soldier died later of a critical injury.
