Jerusalem24 – Yesterday, Israeli Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked stressed the need to evacuate the village of Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem, and to abide by the decision of the Supreme Court.
According to the Israeli Channel 7, Shaked said, “The evacuation of the village of Khan al-Ahmar can be postponed in the first weeks and months of the new government, but this does not mean that the village will not be vacated.”
Regarding the “unification” law, Shaked added: “Since the law was suspended, she has received more than 1,200 Palestinian requests for citizenship, including 300 new requests and the rest requests for status upgrades.”
She continued, “This would not have happened if the Likud Party had not exerted pressure to overthrow the law, and the law would not have been overturned by itself… The Citizenship Law is a testimony of poverty for the opposition,” as she put it.
With regard to launching a new military operation against Gaza, especially in light of the United Arab List’s threat to overthrow the government if implemented, Shaked said: “If there is an operational need to launch a military operation in Gaza, we will not hesitate and will launch the operation.”
The head of the “United Arab List”, Mansour Abbas, threatened that entering into a military operation against Gaza would mean the end of the government.
