Chairman of the Otzma Yehudit party, member of the Knesset Itamar Ben Gvir arrived on Thursday evening at the Assaf Harofeh hospital. and visited the intensive care unit where the Islamic Jihad terrorist is Khalil Awawada, whom Israel agreed to release after a months-long hunger strike that resulted in serious deterioration in health and hospitalization.
Ben Gvir said, “I came here to protest the fact that the State of Israel has become a haven for terrorists. They go on a hunger strike and the State of Israel surrenders. That's how another terrorist comes out of prison.
Knesset Member Ben-Gvir accused Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Prime Minister Yair Lapid of complying, as he put it, with the demands of a terrorist who went on a hunger strike, calling it a “disgrace.”
Entering the intensive care unit, MK Ben Gvir said, “A terrorist cannot be spoiled, he should get a long prison term. And in the event of a murder in Israel, a law on the death penalty for terrorists should be adopted.
On Wednesday, an agreement was reached with Avavadry, according to which his administrative detention will end in early October, and he will be released home.< br />
