Israeli Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Galant has called to assasinate Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Galant made the statement speaking at a conference outside Jerusalem amid the recent US allegations that Syrian security forces were conducting mass executions and were burning the bodies of the “victims.”
“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 said, according to The Times Of Israel.
He called that Assad’s alleged actions are a “genocide” with “hundreds of thousands killed.”
“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.”
