Likud MK calls to 'burn Gaza' in latest controversy

Deputy Knesset Speaker Nissim Vaturi has faced backlash after calling to 'burn Gaza' in a tweet and interview. Vaturi defended his statement, claiming that Gaza is filled with terrorists and must be crushed. However, Gaza has a population of over two million, including many civilians. Vaturi is not the only politician to make controversial statements about Gaza, as earlier this month, Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu suggested nuking the Strip as an option. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has urged his government to be cautious in their public statements.
