BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – An Israeli minister stated at a conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad should be assassinated for war crimes.
Israel’s Housing and Construction Minister, Yo’av Galant, told the crowd at the Jerusalem conference that that the Syrian President “does not have a place in this world.”
“The reality of the situation in Syria is that they are executing people, using directed chemical attacks against them, and the latest extreme – burning their corpses, something we haven’t seen in 70 years,” Galant stated, in reference to the Holocaust, as reported by The Times of Israel.
“In my view, we are crossing a red line. And in my view, the time has come to assassinate Assad. It’s as simple as that,” Galant added.
The Israeli regime has long opposed the Syrian government, going as far as aiding jihadist groups in war-torn Syria by launching repeated airstrikes on the Golan Heights, Damascus, and Homs.
