Israeli Construction Minister Calls for Assassination of Syrian President

JERUSALEM – Israel’s Minister of Housing and Construction Yoav Galant called on Tuesday for the assassination of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, adding that the latter’s regime was the worst since Nazi Germany.

Galant, a former commander of the Israel Defense Forces and a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet since 2015, said at a conference near Jerusalem that al-Assad needed to be killed.

“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, in a reference to the systematic genocide of six million Jewish people between 1933-1945 commonly known as the Holocaust.

Galant also used the actual term “genocide” to describe Assad’s actions against his own people, adding that “hundreds of thousands” were being killed by the Syrian regime in the country’s ongoing civil war.

“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,” he said.

The minister went on to describe the assassination of Assad as “cutting off the tail of the snake.”

“After that, we can focus on the head, which is in (Iran’s capital of) Tehran,” he added.
