Israeli lawmaker and deputy Knesset speaker Bezalel Smotrich said on Saturday that Palestinian child prisoner Ahed Tamimi should have been shot, reported Haaretz.

Responding to a tweet by Israeli journalist Yinon Magal, who wrote he was “so glad that Tamimi is still in jail”, the Jewish Home parliamentarian replied:

In my opinion, she should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap. That would have put her under house arrest for the rest of her life.

Tamimi, from Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank, was arrested in a night raid last December, and ultimately convicted of, among other things, “assaulting” a soldier.

MK Michal Rozin (Meretz) responded angrily to Smotrich, tweeting: “You should be ashamed of yourself! Should the hilltop youth from Samaria [West Bank settlers] who threw stones at IDF soldiers last week also have been shot?” adding: “Oh, I forgot – the law is different for enemies…”.
