Housing Minister Yoav Galant also charges that the rule of the Assad regime is the worst since the Nazis in WWII.
Housing Minister Yoav Galant called for the assassination of Syrian President Bashar Assad following the reports of the regime using a crematorium to hide their atrocities outside Damascus.
“The reality in which people are executed in Syria, being hit deliberately by chemical weapons, their bodies being burned, something we haven’t seen in 70 years, we are crossing a red line and it is time to eliminate Assad, literally,” Galant, a former major-general in th eIDF and a current member of the National Security Council, said on Tuesday at the Second International Ground Warfare and Logistics Conference at Latrun outside of Jerusalem.
Earlier on Tuesday, in an interview with Army Radio, Galant charged that the rule of the Assad regime was the worst since the Nazis led by Adolf Hitler in Germany during WWII.
“What is happening in Syria is defined as genocide, under all its classifications,” he told Army Radio. The Kulanu minister added that Israel wants to see the Assad and his Alawite regime fall from power and be replaced by a moderate Sunni ruler.
