Ben-Gvir says IOF must 'kill thousands' of Palestinians: Israeli media
On June 23, Israeli occupation Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir called on the Israeli government to launch a large-scale military operation in the occupied West Bank, adding that occupation forces must "eliminate terrorists" - in reference to Palestinians defending their lands - Israeli media reported.
Ben-Gvir also urged the occupation government to immediately approve the illegal "Evyatar" settlement outpost.
"I give you my full and complete backing, but I want much more from the settlement here, there needs to be a full settlement here, not only here, but in all the hills around us," the Israeli Minister told settlers during a press conference at the illegal outpost.
He stressed that "Israel must be settled and at the same time as the settlement of the Land a military operation must be launched."
He continued, "[We must] demolish buildings, eliminate terrorists, not one or two, but tens and hundreds, and if necessary even thousands because, at the end of the day, this is the only way we will hold on here," as cited by Israeli media.
"We are backing you, run to the hills, settle down," Ben-Gvir urged the illegal settlers.
Israeli media reported that dozens and possibly hundreds of settlers have broken into the intended so-called "Evyatar" site and are staging events and activities at the illegal outpost.
As per Israeli media, the illegal "Evyatar" settlement outpost was built in 2013 without the approval of the Israeli occupation government, but it was later demolished.
The current government of Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed in coalition agreements with Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich's Religious Zionism party to "legalize" the illegal settlement outpost, which is built on Palestinian land.
